JAMES WINDRAM - FINE ART
PAINTINGS IN OIL AND WATERCOLOR/DISTEMPER
"As a Chester County resident, James Windram doesn't accept the natural world at face value.
Indeed, the Brandywine Tradition is at heart and root Transcendental in the American sense of Emerson
Thoreau - and Windram's watercolor landscapes fit the bill very nicely."

This painting is a tribute piece to Luigi Rist. Although I never met Luigi, I became acquainted with his work (many years ago) at an auction held in Lancaster County, PA, and through a collector in the region who owned several of his prints (and a set of wood blocks) which I now own. I was very much taken with his botanical work. I was told, by the collector, that Luigi struggled to sell his work while he was living, and then, as is the case many times, after his death his work became much collected. For these reasons I wanted to dedicate one of my own botanical works to him.
