On Milford Zornes

While primarily known as a water-colorist, Milford Zornes painted numerous oils over his long and successful art career. Zornes painted several of his oils with a thin texture allowing him to approach his oils in somewhat the same way he approached his watercolors. However, many of his oils are thick and rich with color expressing the same vibrant feeling as with his watercolors. The number of oils remaining is few but here are some of my favorites.
