I lived in Europe and spent much of my time in cafes. To this day, it's one of my favorite things to do. This painting reminds of the time spent in Paris. I used bright colors to give a vibrant feel to the action.
My name is David LaPorte. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I'm a self taught artist and have been painting for the past 15 years. I'm originally from Upstate New York and presently live in Los Angeles. My inspiration to paint came from living in Europe-Paris, Milan, Madrid and Barcelona. I loved the rich history and the beautiful countryside-along with incredible museums. As an artist, I’m fascinated with depth and layers of human emotion. My objective is to translate this challenge onto my canvas. Each painting is a new adventure in the use of color, texture and layering. My intention is to give the surface of the canvas a multi textured feel. Ultimately, the movement on the surface will give way to an inner quiet as I lead the viewer deeper. So it is through the use of bold color, along with spontaneity, that my paintings reflect the rich effect of feeling in our lives. My Impressionist Landscape paintings elevate. I believe great art can touch us deeply and lift us to a higher place. All my work is a reflection of that-a remembrance of our own creative self; the peace within.
