Eric Parfit (1909-2004)

I am grateful to be included in the Oak Group and enjoy painting with them when I can. I feel that they agree with my own philosophy of art which is, briefly, that we artists are given the talent to portray for the viewer the amazing beauty of creation — to help people to see what they are looking at. This is our privilege and our responsibility. I do not claim that I can always do this, but at least I do try. –Eric Parfit
