The reason I created this piece was because I wanted to paint an Impressionist feel using bright, vibrant colors, along with the feeling of open space. I painted this a few years back when I was working on a string of Impressionist Landscapes. My inspiration for creating this piece was related to the time I spent living in Europe. There, I looked at many of Van Gogh's landscapes and portraits in the museums. I liked his broad strokes and bold colors and wanted to incorporate some of that in my work.



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.
