Harold considers himself a contemporary
impressionist painter with an interest in all
themes including landscapes, seascapes, and still
life subjects. He has been strongly influenced by
artists of the Massachusetts Cape Ann School
and also received instruction in Plein air painting
at the British Mounts Bay Art Centre in Newlyn,
the birth place of outdoor painting in England.
Harold uses traditional methods when painting
and teaching, emphasizing accurate drawings,
harmonious compositions, strong value patterns,
clean bright colors, and a variety of brush work.
He uses only archival products in his works of art
including professional-grade paints on oil-primed
linen canvas. Harold has exhibited in numerous
juried venues and teaches art workshops
throughout the Eastern United States. He has a
Masters Degree in Social Work, a Doctorate in
Counseling, and has worked for over 30 years as
a behavioral healthcare professional.
