Background Honored three times at the Carmel Art Festival Robert Lewis [1] has been part of a number of painting competitions and exhibits across the United States, including Sedona Plein Air Festival, San Luis Obispo Plein Air, and Plein Air Easton. Lewis is primarily known as a plein air painter but actually devotes about half of his time to studio work. Before becoming a full time painter, Lewis had a long career in art as an illustrator, designer, and fine artist. His work is part of the permanent collection of the Academy Art Museum on the East Coast and is shown in several galleries including Gallery Elite in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. Before returning to his native California and taking up plein air landscape oil painting he worked in watercolor, scratchboard, paper sculpture, and acrylics, exhibiting his imaginative works. Lewis has lived in nearly every region of the country from Alaska to the Deep South, from the California to Maryland. This variety of scenery has contributed to his long fascination with the enduring beauty of the landscape. Plein air painting is the perfect expression of his love of landscape and being in the landscape. When painting en plein air Lewis paints in oil on canvas on location, finishing his paintings on site in a single sitting. His large-scale studio work is often based on his plein air work. He lives and works in Pacific Grove where he has a painting studio. He maintains an extensive online catalog of his paintings, over 750 in all, at www.robertlewisart.com. Painting Philosophy The following are a few quotes taken from the artist's website... “When you paint, you must always be checking yourself, your thinking. What DO you think about it? Is it true? Does it move you? Is it coming from within, in response to what is without? Be faithful to the truth of what you are painting and you will be led.”[2] “It's just painting after all.. You stand in front of a canvas. You paint. Just forget about the world. Forget about selling. If you start thinking about selling while you are painting, do us all a favor: rid the world of one more example of pandering to the market. Scrape it.”[2] It's a difficult thing to be an artist. The world, at the same time, values you and doesn't value you. And so you can't be an artist and let the world have anything to say about it, since it hasn't made up its mind about you. So you must be an artist for reasons that have nothing to do with the world. It is a thing that must be done entirely for the Spirit that informs. Nothing else will do. Nothing else is true.”[2] ^ Lewis' work can be viewed at http://www.robertlewisart.com ^ a b c See http://www.robertlewisart.com.
