Bob Amos

San Anselmo, CA

I was born and raised in Berkeley, CA.  My education took place in Berkeley through U.C. Berkeley and other Bay Area institutions of higher learning. I came to art in 2002 after retiring from a long career in corporate life, and coincidentally, adjunct teaching in higher education.  The passion I have discovered for art, and the fulfillment of creating something beautiful, lasting, and meaningful far exceeds anything I have experienced previously.  My art is not political, nor is it intended to effect social change through messages, but rather is intended to make people smile and feel good ----- to know that there is great beauty on this planet. After trying several genres over the first three years of my artistic explorations, I finally settled on oil painting ----- that's what I have become ----- an oil painter.  I do landscape and maritime paintings, mostly ----- while I do medium and large studio paintings, I also love plein air painting ----- to paint outdoors, painting on scene, is a very wonderful, inspiring experience (except perhaps when it is cold, windy, and/or raining). The thought of leaving lasting works of beauty for future generations is also very fulfilling to me ----- a legacy, if you will ----- a way of giving back the joy that I have experienced.
