James Pringle Cook


I have done many paintings on commission.

I would be happy to do this to your order,

however the subject and composition must be to my liking.

Please feel free to contact me with your ideas.

detail of James Pringle Cook oil painting


Cook is a painter who is in love with painting, with the feel of paint, with its smell, with its application, with its color, with its movement on the canvas. He paints quickly creating richly colored and exciting surfaces. Indeed his bravura use of paint is akin to the Abstract Expressionsts; unlike them , however, he provides the viewer with a recognizable reality, ordered by his own personal vision and controlled by his technical mastery.
