Amazing Artisan- Ralph Goings

This week's amazing artisan is Ralph Goings. Mr. Goings is one of the first painters to paint in a style called Photo-Realism. When one looks at his work, it is so hard to believe that it is a painting. One of his paintings is of a cup of coffee and a donut. I just want to reach through my monitor and get that donut. All of his paintings cause me to gaze in wonder. I would love to have a 100th of that ability. Until that happens, I am content to enjoy his work.

Unfortunately I was unable to find a video I could embed in this post, but I do have a link for a slide show of his art posted on YouTube. His website, Ralph Goings, shows more of his work and his many exhibitions. Enjoy!
