Ralph Goings

Ralph Goings was one of the giants of our genre.  He passed away September 4, 2016.

“My paintings are about light, about the way things look in their environment and especially about how things look painted. Form, color and space are at the whim of reality, their discovery and organization is the assignment of the realist painter.”
