The online gallery for Dennis Perrin Fine Art. Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called an American Impressionist Painter in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer,  Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others.

I was able to secure some of my favorites for two paintings under the skylight, "Roses in Antique Pitcher," and "Patience in Cobalt Vase." Both paintings feature David Austin English roses, the best (in my opinion) for painting because of their lush, billowy texture.

They asked some poignant and pointed questions that caused me to reflect on where I've come from, where I am, and where I'm headed as an artist and as a person.
