Duane Armstrong


Sundance © 2002

After achieving broad acceptance as a nationally distributed and published artist, Duane Armstrong felt the need to step back from the commercial world of art and focus on the process of painting itself. He returned to his foundations, beginning a furious quest of visual expression without restraint to create unique and beautiful oil paintings.

Duane Armstrong is a very intense man who is serious about his work. Yet, he admits that he is sometimes lost in the vast world he seeks to explore. If you were to ask him what he was doing, and where he was going, he would probably tell you that he didnít know. We do know that he has produced more that 7,000 original paintings since he won his first award at the age of 12, and he continues to be an innovative and exciting artist in the 21st century.



George Sumner


Renewal © 2002

During the forty years he has been a professional artist, George Sumnerís main goal has remained constant. It focuses on the protection of our fragile ecosystems. He considers himself to be an Environmental Impressionist Painter.

When not painting abstracts, his impressionist style of painting attempts to capture the beauty of nature. These oil on canvas paintings are time capsules of his global travels. Subjects vary greatly; from underwater lava tubes in Fiji, to the inland fjords of Milford Sound in New Zealand; from the misty Himalayan mountains in Nepal, to the gushing lava flow of Mauna Loaís eruptions in Hawaii. For over 30 years he has created marine art depictions of whales and dolphins for Green Peace. He enjoys painting very large canvases in a loose, colorful, impressionistic style, and he still loves to paint every day.
