Diversify your personal art collection with fine art from their art gallery and studios located in the Southwest corner of New Hampshire.  Sandy is best known for her whimsical still life paintings while Richard is best known for his portraits and landscape paintings.

Crescent Pond has been home to beavers for over 50 years old and is surrounded on three sides by thousands of acres of forest land and is home to all the forest's creatures including moose, bob cats and black bears.

When clients visit their art gallery and studios, they are taken aback by the beauty of Crescent Pond.  Many have said it is a magical place to be, a nature lover's paradise, a wilderness Giverny. 

Sandy and Richard draw their inspiration from the surrounding environment and often paint what they have seen, as shown in Richard's paintings below.

Painting The Visual Impression by Richard Whitney, PhD.H


"The young painter, who regardless of present popularity would leave a name behind him, must become the patient pupil of nature . . .What are the most sublime productions of the (brush) but selections of some of the forms of nature, and copies of a few of her evanescent effects: and this is the result, not of inspiration, but of long and patient study, under the direction of much good sense." — John Constable 

This booklet is a summary of the fundamental ideas that artists use to help them paint the look of nature and the effects of light and shadow. Richard has listed them in order of importance  so as to help the working painter logically solve problems. 

"I enthusiastically recommend the brilliant and informative painting book by Master Artist Richard Whitney!  Whitney's perceptive insights about painting and portraiture should be of value to artists of every skill level.  His book is on par with the famous Art Spirit by Robert Henri and is destined to be a classic book on portraiture and painting."

    -   Daniel E. Greene, N.A.

This book is available for $28 including S&H.  Please contact Richard for more information.

— American Arts Quarterly

"He is an excellent craftsman whose paintings are very much finished products."
— John Wharton, New England Art Critic?
