Don Ripper

The sea breeze pushes the tree branches. The waning moon is down and the Milky Way illuminate the negative space exposing the structure of the trees and distant hills.

You are in this moment.  

Stay in this moment. Don’t be a tourist. Does this night remind you of someone? Does this painting remind you of when you were there? Don Ripper’s Art takes this raw emotion and organizes it so that it is accessible to the viewer. Don intends this to be emotional.  He presents the sublime power of the night and exposes you in a personal moment.

Born in Washington, D.C. and proud alumnus of Corcoran College of Art and Design.  While at the Corcoran, Don studied under the tutelage of renowned artists, including: William Christenberry, William Newman, Hayes Friedman and Tom Green.  Don’s landscapes and portraits now reside in notable private and corporate collections across the US and abroad.
