During the month of March 2016, artist Theodore Nystrom will display his work in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library. For over 40 years Mr. Nystrom has been a familiar and popular “plein air” artist who enjoys painting on location throughout New England. His well-known watercolors of famous landmarks, seascapes, and landscapes are rendered in a realistic style, using what Nystrom refers to as his “natural” palette. His subjects reflect his belief of one’s peaceful coexistence with nature. Boats, houses, fences and gardens are commonly found in his compositions, along with untamed natural elements of ocean and sky. This is what he says about his work: “The vibrant colors I use are those which emulate hues created by Mother Nature for us to enjoy…. A strong sky is very important in each of my paintings. The sky is the origin of light. Oceans and waterways mirror, to some degree, the colors of the sky, as do other elements. I strive for this natural color unity in my paintings.”
