Mostly, however, they’ll see an artist in peak form and creating with inspired spontaneity. Jerry Ross has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2000.
"My studies after Old Masters are inspired by the desire to see the interrelationships forms, intertwining and overlapping, visual energy flowing and combining into diverse forms. Battle scenes and scenes from Veronese, Tiepolo, and Rubens are used to explore the possibilities of Grand Manner painting in a modern style. " - States the artists about his work.
