Paintings and Words by Richard Stabbert
This is the full color artist's edition: Richard Stabbert is a self-taught painter. He documents the people in his life, both past and present, referencing them, the objects around him, and his love of the beach. All of his images are tied together by a sensuality of brushstroke. He limits his palette to evoke spare, almost graphic forms, as color in itself and line that have a resonance and symbolism for Stabbert.
Picasso once said, "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."
Stabbert is one who embraces the simplicity of his style and approaches his work with passion and enthusiasm. We see his words and works through the eyes of adolescent self-discovery and passion. Richard describes young love, from first flirt to first love, and everything in-between, most often centered here, in the artist colony of Provincetown, Massachusetts.
If you are more of a reader, and full color illustrations are not important to you, you may prefer the economy black and white illustrated edition for less than half the price, please search ISBN#1493684272
