Fine and Graphic Arts

"There is a tactile pleasure to all medium, but I love to slide paint. Its feel in texture, volume and viscosity are like hand candy. Oil feels best." Peter Grabas July 2010


"You can't depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus" ~ Mark Twain


Figure Painting

"I started painting the figure and nudes many years ago in art school, and had the notion to be a figure painter. There is a whole galaxy of inquiry when it comes to the human figure and it delighted me to explore it. Painting a human is so much more than creating an image, its a whole series of statements about them, us, and humanity." Peter Grabas November 2009
