About the Artist - Biography
Frank Francese was born in Arizona in 1951 but has resided in Colorado for most of his life.  He has been a professional artist since 1976 and achieved the groundwork for his profession while attending Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado.
Watercolors came to the forefront of Francese's artistic work in 1983.  His liquid style is unique and distinctive.  Frank enjoys working on a very wet surface, letting the pure color mix itself on the paper.  His shapes are large and loose, often disregarding fine detail.  Frank uses abrupt color changes of the same value with the white of the watercolor paper to bring his paintings to life.  The subject matter for Francese watercolors is always varied, reflecting his national and international travels as well as local western Colorado scenes.

Frank has achieved 'signature status' in six major watercolor societies across the country.  A list of those activities is posted on the "Gallery 5" page of this site.

     For first time visitors to my site, "Welcome!"  The navigation bar displayed in the header lists the title of each page.  "Hovering" over the titles will provide a cascade to additional information where it is available.  The titles will provide a reasonable ‘hint’ as to the content of that page.  Viewing each page in sequence will introduce you my background, the content and conduct of my instructional workshops, a schedule of those events and an introduction to the subject matter which I use for each workshop.  In additional pages I try to share information about new materials and techniques with which I am experimenting, articles regarding past activities outside of the USA and finally, plans for future workshops and special events in which I plan to participate in coming seasons.  The last six pages are dedicated to examples of my work presented in a manner that corresponds to the content of my workshops.  Gallery 6 is new, and portrays some fine images that can be purchased at 'sale' prices.
