Casimir Rutkowski was an East End artist from the 1970s until his death in 2005. It was wonderful to paint with him in a favorite painting spot. We all set up our easels and began to paint, with Casimir bouncing from one student to the next offering advice and encouragement. I asked, "How do you decide what beautiful view to paint?" Casimir proceeded to draw with his pencil on the back of my canvas with cerebral commentary regarding the energy of the object and space.
Below is a photo of Casimir's painting of Shad Bluff Montauk - inspiration!
