OCTOBER 2005 ART EXHIBIT

Watercolors by Matt Holmes

Mr. Holmes retired to Long Island after living in California for more than 20 years. Interested in art all his life, he could devote more time to his passion after the age of 60 when he turned to watercolor to express his visions. Mr. Holmes considers Edgar Whitney his inspiration to work with watercolor. "I feel the spontaneity and immediacy gives watercolor its great appeal. One cannot but be moved by it's brilliant transparency," says Mr. Holmes. Matt Holmes continues to paint, exhibit and teach occasionally. His works are in private collections coast to coast.
