An example of fine art by Dennis Babbitt

Dennis Babbitt primarily paints the landscape.  My decision to pursue the landscape goes back to the desire to see the beauty and calm that surrounds each of us.
Primarily work is in oils, pastel, watercolor. My art is influenced by the work of the Hudson River school, California and Pennsylvania Impressionist schools and artists such as Skip Whitcomb, Sam Hyde Harris, Percy Grey and others. 
Work is available at the Art House Gallery in Fulton Missouri.
