Bernardsville, New Jersey

John Phillip Osborne

American, graduated cum laude from Pratt Institute
in New York and studied painting with Alban Albert
and Arthur Maynard who in turn were from the influence
of Frank Vincent DuMond.                                   

"Coming into my thirty- eighth year of painting and
teaching, my point of view has not wavered and that
is to recreate life on canvas. In doing so, there is a life
long study of the infinite effects of light that nature has
to offer. The light is always prismatic, no matter what
time of day or weather condition. There is always just
one light source, whether painting outdoors or indoors
in a North-lit studio. I arrange the colors on my
palette prismatically and strive to get the prism
under control with the subtle atmospheric progression
of colors and values.                     

Studying the masters, such as George Inness, John Constable, and the French Barbizon painters, I have been able to see what they have shared in common. Now when I go out and paint, I can see beyond the obvious. I am less interested in the fine details and look instead to convey the mood and overall feeling of the moment.
