New Collection - Islamic Architecture

Mosque of Mohammed Ali

I think some of the BEAUTIFUL ARCHITECTURE in the WORLD is ISLAMIC in nature. A DOME surrounded by SPIRES [ minarets ] is from a DESIGN point very STUNNING.

   Article on Buffalo in Colorado Springs Gazette

Buffalo is the subject of an article in the Colorado Springs Gazette titled Painter Captures Natures Wonders.

"Buffalo will go down as one of the premier watercolorists of the 20th century," says Tracy Miller. "Through his paintings, he's documented a space and time and places in Colorado before Colorado became so developed."

"I've got about 100 favorite places," Kaplinski, 70, says from his ranch in Elizabeth. He's lived there for 35 years, and cares for a small herd of Texas Longhorn cattle. "Of course, the Colorado mountains - we've got tremendous scenery right here."

   "Direct, Efficient & Confident Watermedia Painting"

That's how M. Stephen Doherty, editor of Plein Air Magazine describes Buffalo Kaplinski in the May 2013 issue.

"Watermedia painting separates the weak from the strong because the brush marks expose every hesitation and technical deficiency," says Buffalo Kaplinski.

The Artist Profile article discusses influences, techniques, travel advice and features paintings from throughout his career.
