Buyers and collectors are invited to purse all artist file pages in this collection including artist links here on FAA as this group features several disciplined artists working in well thought out series of perfected images. Such artists may only have one or a few of their images in this group at a time in order to maintain community group variety and space. This group is updated one or two times per month. Some of the finest works may be found way at the back, in the higher numbered pages as FAA loads from back to front.
Open to all FAA artists internationally, the American Style Impressionism group embodies all the qualities of the master French impressionists with one difference: form, space and dimensional integrity are retained throughout compositional design. Impressionism means: an impression of the rendered subject matter. American Style Impressionism includes loose brushwork and clear natural light coloration while retaining, for the most part, form, space and dimensional integrity (that avoids surrealism, cubism, abstraction and expressionism).
Here are some helpful links sampling types of works sought for this group:

8. Poorly photographed or cropped images are subject to rejection.

10. Daily limit per artist set to a maximum of one (1) image to support group variety.
Periodically, in no reflection of submitted works, I may delete and or rotate featured images to keep the page alive; AND, in such instances, return submissions are welcome.
