Phil Philbeck enjoys the surroundings in which he grew up and is inspired to paint its farms, streams, ponds, coast or anything to which he feels an emotional attachment. Philbeck's subjects, mountains, rolling piedmont, and coastal views, hold great appeal with magnificent vistas, wide sandy shores, wonderful spring and fall foliage.
Philbeck?s canvases reveal his immense talent in a profusion of details, and he is especially known for the skies in his images."The sky sets the basic tone for my landscapes,? states Philbeck. Textures, shapes, and contrasts derived from many of nature?s wonders are painted in vibrant colors; with interesting juxtaposition, the artist bathes his scenes in a dramatic light and atmosphere. Although Philbeck very much admires realism, he has a tendency toward the romantic, emotional types of images such as the Hudson River School brought forth.
Join Phillip Philbeck in appreciating all that nature offers. Come to the mountains and piedmont and enjoy the spring and the fall. Take in the glorious coastlines. And all other times when the landscape blooms anew or when the fall colors take your breath away or the smell the salt air brought by gentle breezes from the ocean. Take in the beautiful landscapes created by this very talented artist.
