Lesser known Berkey paintings

everyone has several artists that influence them and John Berkey has always been on the top of my list. he passed away this year and i've been wanting to do a tribute to him for awhile. one of the main reasons i was drawn to him as an artist was because he made up or invented so much of what he painted. this to me was the supreme end goal and i tailored my education around getting the skills that would allow me to do the same. i collected everything i could on him before the publication of the two books on his art and wanted to share some of the clipings from my collection that aren't usually seen. i had the privelge of meeting John one Christmas and i know that oppurtunity made me a better artist.

These are great reference Robh, you can defiantly see his influence on an artist like Greg Pro. Congrats on the gold in spectrum!

I actually own the original painting 'The Experiment'. I too had the honor of meeting John and kept in touch with him for many years. He is by far the greatest artistic influence in my life. What a kind and gentle man he was.
