“Oil Painting Replicas from Museums Around the World” by Local Artist Robin Stanard
Artist Robin Standard grew up in Colfax, eventually raising two daughters here and working in his family’s carpentry business. While he found satisfaction in the creativity of designing and remodeling homes he is very excited to again be focusing upon his art.
Stanard begun drawing as a child and is self-taught, spending years practicing with pencils and paints. About three years ago, his daughters gave him some watercolors and color pencils for Father’s day and the spark returned. Stanard began an intense journey into the work of 20th Century artists and was inspired to replicate their works. Stanard says, “Their paintings have the ability to generate great emotion in a different way for every person. I believe this is the true magic of art.”
