Official portrait by AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt       As it is Fred’s birthday, today is a good day to feature this consummate artist.  You can find him at his easel daily, in his Lake Worth home studio.  He moved here from Coconut Grove in part to the CRA’s effort with the Renaissance program.  He does not depend on inspiration, but faces his easel as if going to work daily.   No weekends off, he is passionate.   He has been included in the Art in Embassies Program which promotes the cultural identity of America’s art for display in foreign countries.  This  oil painting commissioned by them for the  Millenium Project in Panama is titled  “The way it was”, Many of his watercolors have been published world-wide. “Ginger Blossoms” the most popular one and this one “Rainbow Daisies With Cat”  has just been republished in EnglandAt 75 he gave up watercolors as it became hard to bend over in the traditional manner of doing this particular art form.  He returned to  oil painting after a 40 year hiatus and never missed a beat.   This oil painting below sold at Society of the Four Arts.What is his style?   That is difficult as a life long artist, there is nothing he cannot render beautifully.  i.e.  “Winner by a Nose”. which is nothing like his floral and I haven’t even touched on his portraiture.  He also exhibits his sculptures.  When I started out with consummate, I meant supreme mastery and skill. Here’s to you Fred xoxoxxo Happy Birthday.      He can be reached via fredhuntart@mac.com and   http://web.mac.com/fredhuntart                              I have been featuring artist who live in Lake Worth for quite some time in this series “Portrait of our Artist” the most recent was Annette Rawlings and Barbara Johanson  If you know artists who lives in 33460 please let them know that I would like to feature them as Lake Worth’s own cultural treasure.
