Searching for Shells

Don Hatfield is one of the most innovative impressionists of our time. His style of painting softly blends figures of realism with the gentle touch of classic impressionism. Don strives to create paintings that bond themselves to the viewer. In the vein of romantic impressionism, he shows the viewer that beauty can arise from one stirring moment' a family reunion, a young boy searching for shells on the beach or the warmth of the sun touching a mother and her child.

His paintings carry light and form to a new and extremely personal degree. Don says he is preoccupied with the effect of light on form. The beach, with all the purity of its light on sand, water and figures, is a frequent setting for his stories. "On the beach," he says, "the viewer is given enough space to have his own reaction."
