Walter J. Pasko has devoted his creative energy, for the past forty years, to the painting of landscapes directly from nature. His broad oil painting style has evolved from a need to capture the fleeting play of light and shadow patterns on the landscape, essential to the design of his paintings.
He has been living for most of his adult life in the Berkshire Hills of northwestern Massachusetts where he regularly scouts the back country looking for saw mills, sugar houses, streams, and small villages as subject matter for his paintings.
Primarily self-taught, he studied and painted with the late Maurice Kennedy, friend and former student of Lester Stevens (N.A.). He has a Ph.D. of M.E. degree from the University of Massachusetts.
He belongs to:
The Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MA;
The North Shore Art Association, Gloucester, MA;
The Academic Artists Association, Springfield, MA; and
The Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester, VT.
Exhibited in Good Purpose Gallery November 18, 2016 – February 21, 2017.
