From the Publisher

Accomplished Authors

The Art of Oil Painting features the works of 10 renowned fine artists, each of whose paintings have been recognized by the larger artistic community: Anita Hampton, John Loughlin, Robert Moore, Michael Obermeyer, William F. Powell, William Schneider, Frank Serrano, Kevin Short, Tom Swimm, and Caroline Zimmermann. Together this team of experts boasts a phenomenal number of achievements.

The authors of this book have paintings featured in private collections around the world and displayed at such prestigious institutions as the Smithsonian Institute and the Pentagon. In addition, their art has been displayed in numerous exhibitions--including showings in Madrid, Spain, and Paris, France--and in an array of art galleries across the United States, from California to New York and many in between.

These talented artists also hold memberships in a variety of clubs and guilds, including the Oil Painters of America, California Art Club, Laguna Plein Air Painters, and Guild of Boston Artists. And they have won dozens of awards, including the Franklin Mint Award at the National Oil Painters of America Exhibition, the People's Choice Award at Echoes and Visions, the Great Gatsby Memorial Award from the Rockport Art Associations, and the Art of California Gold Award.
