"It’s an act of trust each time we approach the easel,

and whether the result is pleasing or not,

we trust again the next time.

For painters, faith might be our greatest resource."

All I Need, Oil, © John Lasater  

John Lasater walks the artist's road with curiosity and experimentation, combining a love of art history with a contemporary awe of the light and landscape he finds in his travels both nationally and internationally.

   Lasater has participated in plein air events across the country, often winning top honors. He combines his plein air work with a strong studio practice, adding portraiture and still life painting to his oeuvre. Teaching is a way to pass along his decades of observation and dedication to painting. 

   He wrote to us about the twists and turns taken in his life-long passion for art.
