Burnett & Williams is pleased to be celebrating the New Year with a unique collaboration with the talented fine artist John Gable of Woolwich, Maine. Working with John, we have created a series of notecards from some of his unique paintings depicting classic scenes in Virginia and Washington, DC, from Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin to Horse Racing in Middleburg.
From his studio on the coast of Maine, John creates portraits and scenic paintings for clients around the world, work that includes official commemoratives for three America’s Cup winners and a series for the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum. Locally, his historical paintings have also appeared recently in the Willard Hotel, Clyde’s restaurant, Coastal Flats restaurants, and Sweetwater Taverns.
Mr. Gable’s distinct sense of composition infuses his work with a quality of light and atmosphere that creates a mood beyond realism. He always seems to frame the composition at just the right moment to pull the viewer into the heart of the scene.
The full range of John Gable’s work can be seen on his website.
