R. Bruce Brennan Fine Art

"As an artist I try to portray the incarnation of something fantastic in the everyday reality of the Universe.  Whatever it is: a visionary painting, a landscape or a seascape; the journey in paint along a path to a distant vanishing point; the play of colors and shimmering light, somehow mysteriously transcendental, and yet somehow earthbound.  It is this quest for a domain of wonder within the mind and the life experiences - to transmit something more than mundane vision, is what inspires my efforts."  



Bruce has exhibited all of his painting career.  His most recent exhibition was at The Orlando Museum of Art in Orlando, Fl, in August 2016.  Other recent exhibitions include: The Amsterdam Whitney Gallery, Chelsea NYC, 2013; Light House Gallery Museum, Tequesta, FL many times in the years from 2002 - 2012; Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach, FL, in the years 2008, 2009, 2010,  & 2011.


Bruce has traveled extensively throughout Europe, England, Ireland, and Scotland, the USA, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Belize, most of the Caribbean islands, Honduras, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Cambodia and has received much inspiration, for his life, as well as his art, from these travels.

Also, I have a large chocolate lab dog. She is the sweetest dog and just wants to make friends with everyone. She won't be joining us in the studio, she NEVER goes into the guests accommodations - guests have their own private floor - but she does live with me and she is a very loving dog.
