In Which Peter Heads For The Caribbean In Search of New Artistic Visions


Caribbean impressionist landscape painter Peter Pettegrew leaves Florida today for an 8 day painting expedition to St. John, St. Croix and St Thomas– US Virgin Islands, exploring for those idyllic scenes Pettegrew always finds. Mostly known as a Florida landscape impressionist , he is also known as a western landscape impressionist, a southeastern landscape impressionist and of course a Caribbean landscape impressionist painter. On this trip he will be traveling on a 55 foot catamaran; he is an experienced sailor and will also be part of the crew.
Last year he did a voyage on the same ship and sketched, painted and sailed his way through the British Virgin Islands and then on to St. Maarten and St. Barts in the West Indies. Look for pictures of his travels here in about 2 weeks …bon voyage.

“Dawn On The Island” Is Perfected

Peter Pettegrew has completed “Dawn On The Island,” a robust 30×40 oil painting on stretched canvas. Exploiting the subtle shades of green and gold ever-present in the wild Florida landscape is something Peter does in nearly every painting, but this piece explores these tonalities with a delicate mastery without exaggerating for effect.
