Kevin Kasik – Myriad of Moods

Kevin Kasik is Los Gatos Museums Gallery’s Featured Artist for October and his opening reception for his show “Myriad of Moods” was today – I had to go as I have some skin in the game!

I love Kevin Kasik’s oil paintings!  His works appear to very soft and subdued until you get up close and discover the rich riot of color and texture in the paint. His subject matter ranges from traditional landscapes, still-lifes and portraits to more contemporary subjects from street life, often imbuing the work with his own quirky sense of humor. When he asked me for a hand with his postcard in trade for a painting it was too easy to say you bet! I want to choose after his exhibition is over though – a sale is a sale after-all!
