The landscape has inspired artists for hundreds of
years and Mark R Brockman is no different. What sets
Brockman apart from the others, is his ability to look
at the landscape with the eye of an Abstract

"I have participated in numerous shows (juried, one man and group shows) having won a number of awards. My work hangs in private collections across the USA as well as in Germany. One of my paintings was presented to the town of Stelzenburg, Germany by its sister city of Thurmont, Maryland. My paintings have hung in many galleries over the years and do so now in the galleries listed below. I teach painting on a part time basis, to instill the love of creating to those who desire it."
