Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called a painterly American Impressionist in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer, Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others. A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothed and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. Though not as frequently seen in his work, Perrin is an avid plein air painter of the New England landscape.

Second Annual Artist's Retreat The Home and Studio of Dennis and Aimee Perrin 8/31/2015-9/4/2015 Reception: ()
Spend 5 glorious days and nights in a little part of paradise, painting and growing as an artist, while enjoying delicious food, great community, and nearly indescribable ambience. Each day begins with a nourishing farm to table breakfast on the porch overlooking the gorgeous landscape. Then, a spirited discussion about all things art and artistry, followed by a painting demonstration by Master painter Dennis Perrin. A break for lunch, again farm to table, and again on the porch, followed this time by more painting in the landscape where you'll choose from vistas, gardens, water lilies, classic houses and barns, or so much more. After dinner, we'll gather for a game or an art themed movie and discussion, then start all over again in the morning. All of this for $500, which includes breakfast. There are 3 private rooms available on site for $50 per night, and the lunch is optional for $15 per day. Nearby accommodations are also available. Registration is limited, so please secure your spot ASAP by contacting Dennis Perrin at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 603-205-0425.
