Reviews - What do customers think about Robert Selkowitz: A Painters Path Through the Catskill Mountains: Landscapes in Pastel?

Enjoy the Journey  Jan 11, 2007
A personal journey through the Catskill Mountains, not a how-to technique book but an experience of life through the artist's eyes. With supporting essays by long-time Catskill photographer John Kleinhans and curator Wayne Lempka. The works are spontaneous and painted in pastel on location in all seasons, but mostly Fall. The maps show where the paintings were done. Includes area of Ashokan Reservoir, Esopus Creek in Ulster County, Kaaterskill Falls in Greene County and the farms of dairy country in Delaware County. As regards nasty review posted Feb 16, 2005, look at artist's website at [...]and make up your own mind.
It reminds me of home........  Dec 22, 2006
To the previous reviewer - you are obviously not from the Catskills, are you? No one can review a book about the Catskills like someone who grew up there, like me. And, no one can look at a picture and know what it means, if one has no intimate knowledge of the region.

That picture on the cover strikes me deep in my heart, because it is just like the house down the road, where I used to walk to the swimming hole.

And, the painting style is "stylized", if you don't know. It is not supposed to be realistic.
A Painter's Path through the Catskill Mountains.  Feb 16, 2005
If you like first grade scribble pictures, you will like this book. A "Painter's" Path is not about creating art or a technique book. The pictures are flat, no shading, childlike, and the strokes or scribbles have no variety. The book has a few maps of the Catskill area. Mr Selkowitz claims to be a professional pastel artist. He does not list any professional designation from any Art Pastel Organizations. He does not list honors from pastel art associations or gallery shows. Mr Selkowitz lists each state where he had a exhibition. What kind of exhibition? The critics that wrote reviews for the book are musicians, friends, and the Catskill Mountain citizens. No reviews by actual painter or pastel artists. The book appears written to be self serving. If the book was wriiten as a travel log, there are approximately 10 pages with limited text describing the Catskills. The rest of the book has pictures paintings. I must say the only thing good about the book was the Title, but it was misleading.
