Landscapes and Still Life in Pastel and Oil.

Local artist Michael Piccirillo works in pastels as well as traditional oils and seeks to capture on canvas the varied and rich landscapes of the Connecticut countryside. His paintings bring to the view the subtle and ever present diversity and richness of the western part of the state. While some of his paintings represent other parts of the country, his primary attention and focus has been in the local area.Although primarily self-taught, he has studied at the Creative Workshop in New Have, the Washington Art Association, as well as the Society for Creative Arts in Newtown
