Ed King: In the Country

A painting of geese by Ed King

Ed King is a contemporary painter working in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  His work draws inspiration from Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists including Degas, Van Gogh and Cezanne.  King prefers to work outdoors whenever possible. “I have worked on a horse farm for years and years, so elements of nature and the weather are always evident in my work. I like realism with a small element of abstraction…I’m always striving to better myself as a painter and try to maintain the element of spontaneity,” says King.  In addition to painting, King is a printer, woodworker and ceramicist.
