Robin M. Widoff
I am Robin M. Widoff and I'm happy to call Calistoga my home. From an early age I became interested in sculpting clay and wax but spent my work life as a California State employee and at the beginning of 2013 I retired. In 2014, I began studying with my mentors; the talented Deirdre Shibano oil painting artist and the gifted watercolor artist Allis Teegarden. My purpose is to capture through watercolor and oil painting the intangible feeling and thoughtfulness of my subjects, as with my latest work; "Robin Frances", 10.5" x 13.25", watercolor on paper. Watercolor inspires me through the translucent and iridescent effects I can produce. Also, my portrait of "Maya Mary", 18"x18", oil on marble, is another example. I am moved by the ability of the marble canvas to give natural realism to portraits. I consider myself quite blessed to have the inspiration and encouragement of my mentors and fellow artists. I am also grateful for the loving support of my wife, family and friends.
Thank you for viewing my work.
