Peter Jaruszewski (JARU)

Tobermory seen from Fisherman's pier, Isle of Mull, Scotland

Material: Acryl on canvas
Size: 100 cm x 70 cm cm

Tobermory is the main town on the Isle of Mull, an island in the Inner Hebrides off the northwest coast of Scotland. A colorful row of houses nestles picturesquely on a beautiful bay. The term 'picturesque' really fits here as the buildings gleam in a variety of colors rather unusual for Scotland where most houses are granit gray or whitewashed.
My name is Peter Jaruszewski, called JARU. I am self-taught and started painting in my youth. In my expressionistic pictures I show memories of beautiful places, experiences with people, feelings and moods. They are very colorful and should above all convey an enjoyment for life. On countless trips I collected motifs, learned from living artists as well as from old masters of the past and brought not only impressive places but also situations and people to the canvases in order to bring what I saw and experienced to life with radiant color intensity and to hold it forever. For me and my painting, the quote from Joan Mitchel (American painter) applies: “If I don't feel what I paint, then I don't paint it”.
