Paul Cloutier (Abstract Art)
Paul is an "outsider" artist focusing primarily
on abstract art. He's been a member of the Framingham Artists' Guild for four
years and his greatest inspiration is color. He's found that creating works that
are brightly colored or have texture reminds him of the time when he first
learned abstract art. Art has given purpose to Paul's life. His everyday focus
is trying to create something that he is proud of whether it be a simple
abstract paper drawing to a large piece that takes him weeks to finish.
