“Donald Munson is a poet singing the joy of nature, using color and line to produce
a poem in visual terms. He has a personal style of great distinction.… to evolve from
sensitive line. …into work one finds a combination of love and understanding of both
nature and form.”
Eva Gatling,The Heckscher Museum.
“…open the gates of imagination… (D.M.) has a sophisticated Élan…"
"(Don)…balances geometric and biomorphic elements to create exquisite formal tensions
in his paintings of flowing forms…”
Art Speak, Soho, N. Y. , Caude LeSuer
"His work assimilates, then trandsends, to illuminate abstracted essential truths with
a masterful visual language built on line and color. "

Paintings I create are the visual tension between abstraction and realism. My studio is on the 3rd floor ... up the red staircase of my home in Longmeadow, MA.
