Peter Zambas's knowledge of art stems from his studies as an industrial design major. His love for oil painting comes from an apprenticeship he attended after surviving a bout of cancer. As an art teacher, he teaches the joys of seeing. As a painter, he teaches the joys of living. He says, "I paint because it feels good." There's no better reason than that.

That's great Frank. I'm pleased you like it and Niko was happy too!

Frank 9/3/2015 | 1:20 PM

Hi Peter- just to let you know that the painting "Rose Buds with Nico" just arrived and it was just perfect. Beautiful texture and the size just fits the part of the wall I was aiming to fill. My very best to Nico and thank him for the idea. All the best, Frankk

Mystery solved Peter- great name for your son and it looks like he might turn out to be an artist like his Dad. Cheers, Frank

Hey Frank, That's great. Niko is my son. When he was 5, he and I picked some roses to give to his mom and he said, "they're so pretty, daddy. Paint them." So we both did a quick sketch of them. His went to grandma and my are going to you. Thanks for the patronage. Peter

Hi Peter- I'm back and just ordered "Rose Buds with Niko" I love the painting and it just fits where I want it. By the way- who or what is "Niko". Can't wait to see it in person. Cheers, Frank

Frank 8/19/2015 | 12:51 PM

No problem Peter- You answered my question below and Ill be back to you soon. Cheers, Frank

Hi Frank, Thanks for your inquiry and sorry for the late response. I was out of town. This piece has a block, top and bottom, on the back with a wire. I do that on most of my panel pieces since I like to hang them too. Let me know if you have any other questions. Peter

Hi Peter- Quick question- can you put a frame on the back so it is ready to hang? Let me know- Thanks, Frank

I'm very excited to be part of ugallery and look forward to gaining broader exposure for my work. Part of the joy of being an artist is the opportunity to engage with art lovers in discussions about art, my process, and their reaction to my work. So please don't hesitate to post your comments and questions. I look forward to the dialog.
