Frank Kecskés grew up in Los Angeles, and as a kid used to
watch his father paint landscapes at home on the weekends. He had always
fascinated by his fathers artistic talents. More remarkable was the
fact that he was self taught. "It was amazing how much I picked
up by just watching him create beautiful landscapes".
with my father's influence, I was also inspired by the dramatic
work of James Fetherolf. In my work, I strive to capture the moment
and mood of the awesome beauty nature provides. The clouds and
they throw on the countryside is particularly fascinating to me.
work is full of contrasts of all kinds. Light vs shadow, warm
vs cool colors, crisp and sharp detail vs wispy and atmospheric clouds
and sky. Being able to "walk into" a painting is my constant goal.
Nature is too grand to minimize!
My work has been
collected over the years
and is found in homes and offices throughout the country. People
have said my work has a realism and is of high quality....I say to
that, "Isn't nature even more so? Why would I paint any other way?". Frank
