John P. Osborne is a dedicated painter and teacher of the principles of light which illuminate all fine paintings. The atmospheric paintings are works of tonality and subtlety that evoke an emotional rather than tangible remembrance.
As a cum laude graduate of Pratt Institute in New York , his paintings are exhibited internationally at the American Embassies in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. Nationally, he is represented by galleries from the east coast to the west.
Osborne received the first American Artists Achievement Award for Teacher of Oil Painting. As a result of his ongoing independent landscape studies, his paintings convey the direct study of nature in all its mysterious moods. His paintings have been commended with many Best in Show awards including the Hudson Valley Art Association’s Gold Medal of Honor including numerous Best Light and Atmospheric Effect awards.
Osborne is a recipient of the Hudson Valley Art Association’s highest honor: Artist in Special Tribute. In addition, his principal painting instructors were Alban Albert and Arthur Maynard, who became the major influence in his philosophical approach to painting.
