Colors Edge Of the Forest Seen Better Days Peacefulness

"Artists—real artists, serious artists, memorable artists—work not in oils and watercolors, clay and stone, verbs and nouns and harmonic vibrations from reeds and strings, but in emotions. Artists paint and sculpt, write and sing, finger the necks of a Stradivarius or a Stratocaster using passions so visceral our ancestors knew them only as Magic. And Magic is exactly what I feel when looking into an Adriano Manocchia painting."

James R. Babb, Editor, Gray’s Sporting Journal


Fine Art Oil Paintings

"I'm haunted by waters..."

From A River Runs Through It by Norman MacLean

In his fine art paintings, there is no doubt that Adriano Manocchia is fascinated by water. His landscapes often become waterscapes, their focal point, an ever-changing fluid mass portraying many different moods and nuances. Where water is not the subject, light becomes the drama. The saturated colors of fiery sunsets, the delicate tones of soft sunrises, the powerful shadows of impending storms transform an otherwise tame landscape into a striking work of art.

Summer Studio

As I'm spending my days painting in my Summer studio, I started thinking that you might want to take a peak at my creative space. I love working in this part of my historical barn that I've been restoring a little at a time. This spacious room affords me the opportunity of working on larger paintings and surrounding myself with some of my favorite antiques.

If you find yourself traveling in this area, why don't you stop by and check it out in person? Just let me know before you get here and I'll make sure to be at the studio to greet you. —Adriano
