Francis Livingston is a gallery artist and illustrator based in Idaho who I wrote about back in 2006.
Since then his style continued to develop and change, exploring new themes.
In his latest work, he floats animals through the skies, parks and large scale building interiors of New York, as well as placing other objects like steamships similarly out of context.
In these, he brings the same painterly sensibility as evident in his paintings from life, giving his fantastic visions a kind of immediacy and authenticity that more sharp focused realism could not.
Though he still does not appear to have a dedicated website or blog, Livingston does now have a deviantART page, and he is well represented on the Arcadia Fine Arts site, as well as the site of Lindgren & Smith, artists representatives.
When viewing his work on the Arcadia Fine Arts site, take advantage of the “Full Screen Toggle” feature (link at upper right).
Livingston also teaches online courses in Landscape Painting and Narrative & Genre painting through The Art Department.
