Cezanne: art in harmony with nature

Some of the sales of Joel Ellis Art in 2015.

St. Joseph River Headwaters

An important place to those who know this river.
C├ęzanne often stressed that he painted from nature and according to his sensations, seeking to realize a “harmony parallel to nature.”

There’s no necessity to understand his works, as he only wanted people to appreciate and love his efforts. As we artists work at our crafts we try to keep in mind the audience, the viewer, as a partner in the total experience of seeing and feeling the impulses that propel the creative outcome.

All this fancy talk just to say we hope you give us a chance to complete the cycle--- our interpretations transformed from nature and presented in our message to the viewer. That interpretation could be a still life, a portrait or landscape and even an abstract that forms our efforts to create a visual harmony in nature.

Thank you to all who purchased paintings from Joel Ellis Art this year from galleries and the online website. Each painting purchased is a confirmation of the work. I am humbled by the support.
