Rythym in Painting Art by Joseph Fama

About Joseph Fama

I was President and Creative Director of Fama & Associates, Inc. Also, served as an Art Director for several advertising agencies in New York city. Designing Christmas ornaments, for Christopher Radko. and illustrations for Wild West magazines. I earned a bachelor's degree from Iona College and attended Pratt Institute, School of Visual Arts and the Reilly League of Artists. Cesare Borgia was my instructor. I am a member of The American Artist Professional League, and Oil Painters of America .

I am always on the lookout for picturesque scenes, for my landscapes. If a view has merit and is gratifying, I want to capture the mood immediately with plein –air color sketches. Later, working from the color sketches, a finished oil painting is completed in my studio. It is a challenge to capture nature with all its wondrous colors and subtleties of shade-dark and light. When a person views my paintings want them to get the same emotional feeling that I experienced when I first viewed the scene.
