A little here to help you know me better.
I studied at the Art Students League of New York City and the Baum School of Art in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
My studio is located in the Western Massachusetts town of Great Barrington in the Birkshires. Please visit my website at www.RICKCARBONELL.COM for ordering commissions and originals, border prints, view galleries, or to check out my studio blog!
Although I do much artwork indoors I enjoy plein air painting as it gives me the flexibility to travel on location with my easel to complete paintings for clients where and when they choose.
My artwork is primarily done in oil. I am also verse in acrylic paint, pen and ink, pastel, and watercolors.
Past commissons have included clipper ships, homes, pets, landscapes, people, to name a few.
My artwork is my playground! I find the mental and physical process of making art takes me to a place
where I can take everyday objects and transform them in my imagination before I display the new reality
upon my canvas! I hope my art transcends the viewers to a place outside their daily routine if not just for a moment.
