PAUL STONE's oils are often distinguished by a daring implementation of color, placing the viewer within the beautifully surreal.
The heart of Stone's work remains the landscape, where architectural forms of the New England farm complement the reforested, lumbering hills and brilliant meadows of a diminishing agricultural milieu, arrested in poignant color.
Paul Stone grew up in Vermont and took degrees from Dartmouth and Tufts Medical before settling back in Guilford to raise his family and sustain a career in dentistry. Painting was always his passion, beginning in grade school, where he first studied art. That study continued through undergraduate and graduate schools and on into his career. His formal education behind him, Paul began seriously to produce and market his watercolors in the early 1970s.
Working extensively from pencil sketches of farms and hills garnered during weekend jaunts through the back roads of Southern Vermont, Paul developed the ability to translate his experience of a distinct essence of his surroundings into a language all his own, particularly a poignant investigation of the centuries of designed and incidental sculpting of the Vermont landscape, by both human and natural 'hands.'
