SEPTEMBER 6–29, 2019

Michael Kraniski

“Storms and a Little More”



First Saturday, September 7, 5–9 pm

Michael is best known for his “Skyscape” paintings, and for his use of a strong color palette.  Michael feels that the most interesting element in a landscape painting is the sky. A landscape is static, and of little interest until the sky acts upon it. The sky sets the mood.  It controls the color and light of the landscape, and provides a sense of movement to the painting. His paintings are representational, in all paintings the atmosphere or mood is most important. 

The inspiration for Michael’s paintings developed from watching the constantly changing skies, and his love for the landscapes. He looks for situations that are unique to a particular place and weather conditions at the time, and tries to capture the mood of the moment.
