Thanks for your kind words. They made my day (and probably all of next week). I so enjoyed your photos–I spent some of the best years of my life in a darkrroom, many happy memories.
So beautiful! A modern Turner. What a pleasure to look at your works!
LJ, Thanks for viewing, and the Turner comparison. It doesn’t get better than that!
Maurice, it is great pleasure to watch, step and walk on your landscape canvases… what a great world and amazing work. Thank you for the inspiration.
Your work is stunning, peaceful, spiritual, and luminous!
Naomi, Thank you, thank you, and thank you.
Your stuff is thrilling. 🙂 Thanx for visiting, I’m right there with you.
Your work is exceptionally beautiful!
And you are exceptionally kind. I thank you.

Stunning work with a demonstrated understanding of the natural world.
Thank you, Elena.
Thank you for following my page – looking at your work, it feels like I’ve caught the attention of one of the masters. What a beautiful collection of Turner-esque paintings!
Thank you, Kirsty
I love the paintings, and the drawings too. You have a good eye.
Oh so breathy and beautiful! Just marvelous Maurice! ~~Vickie
Thank you, Vickie—much appreciated.
I think the Venice mist painting is beatiful and subtle as only moody Venice can be.
Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I visited your site—-wonderful paintings. In answer to your question, most abstract artists sign on the back of their canvas.
Thank You for being supportive of my artworks!! And for liking my awards … *Cynthia
Beautiful work! I especially like your use of texture. Thank you for visiting!

Hi, Maurice –

Your doing great. Love your paintings!

Very nice paintings.
Hi Maurice Sapiro,

Thanks for regularly checking out my work and for Liking my posts. Your work and your concerted efforts to get it out there are impressive. Wishing you luck.
Thanks for the follow. Landscapes are spectacular. Someone said “visual poetry”, agree.
great and thanks for the visit
Really love your paintings Maurice! Just Beautiful!!!!
I just viewed your site. I see we share a common vision. I thought I was the only one who admired Wolf Kahn and Joan Mitchell.
PS And your paintings are a joy to see.
Love your work Maurice. I’d love to be able to paint like this! Thank you for visiting me! 🙂
Beautiful atmospheric paintings! Thank you for visiting my site too!
You do beautiful landscapes.
I must say, you are quite prolific at your craft. I really enjoy each unique presentation.
Hi Maurice, Your landscape paintings remind me of Turner, your colors are really rich! Have you been in the Rotunda Gallery at the Corcoran Museum, in DC? They’ve a great collection of his work. I read in one of your earlier comments that you like Joan Mitchell’s work, I’ve always been taken with her colors. Thanks for looking at my art.
Thanks, Michelle, I was lucky enough to get to the Tate in London in 1956—-Turner has been with me ever since. Thanks for looking and commenting.
These are wonderful.
Morning Fog, The Lake and The Sentinel and Gold on Water particularly caught my eye and I enjoyed on closer inspection as well. I’ll have to come back.
Thanks Lynne. I just discovered your site—–beautiful! Thanks for viewing mine.
Beautiful and inspiring! I love your style. I would love to write mini stories for each of your paintings!
I would love to read your mini stories. Thanks for looking and commenting. I’m working on a new large work—it might inspire a novel?
I would love you as my mentor, your work inspires me. Love them all!
Gill, thanks, you keep painting, I’ll keep inspiring.
I will Maurice, thank you! x
Absolutely stunning! I love the misty quality of them!
Thanks for viewing my site too!
Maurice, thank you so much for “liking” my post. And I’m so glad you did because I have now gotten to see your magnificent work. Its moody and ethereal qualities immediately put me in mind of Turner. Very inspiring work!
All the best,
Maurice, every image in your post could inspire a poem with their beauty! I love landscapes, and would be happy one day to write a poem for anyone of your choice. The spirit that comes to life in each is so very soothing. Blessings my friend! Thank you for your visit!
Subtle to sensational- it’s all there. Love Venice in Mist and Gold on the Water especially. Fabulous work, Maurice 🙂
Thank you, Johanna!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Iceland is a paradise for painters.
Your landscapes are quite lovely. Thank you for stopping by my site and the like of my post “Orange with a Little Glow”.
Wow! Maurice your collection of paintings is amazing. How wonderful your ability to convey the mood of each piece. Excellent work!:D
Thank you, Patricia!
I do abstraction/figurative when I DO paint therefore we are different. But I want to know how you get so much light in your work. I will aspire to that when I start painting again. Thanks for liking my post!
We are different in many ways—I’m 81. Viva la differance!
You followed my photo blog today and I’m honored that you would take the time to do that. You’re art is terrific and I wish I could make images with my camera as well as you paint.
Lovely atmospheric work.
Looking forward to your posts.
Thanks so much for following Galri Montaj Nouvel.

Stunning and amazing work you have here!
Thanks for the likes and visiting my page! 🙂
I thank you.
Maurice, pure art!!
Thanks for your response—-pure joy.
Wow, beautiful work!
Maurice, thank you so much for another “like” on my blog and for following, I really am flattered as I find your work absolutely fantastic! Especially your landscape paintings and your photographs are just so wonderful in their colouring and atmosphere. I very, very much enjoy your posts.
All the best from Germany
And all the best from America. And thanks.
Maurice, I really adore your landscapes. I grew up in marshy Michigan, and the flat landscape of the off-seasons has a subtlety and texture that you evoke so beautifully.
What kind of surface are you working on? are these painted on smooth panels?
These paintings were done over a 14 year time period, so the surface varies. The ones on canvas are double primed with a thick gesso, applied with a large knife to get a rather smooth surface. The paintings on panel are also gesso primed, sometimes by roller, sometimes by brush. Thanks for looking and liking.
Wonderful work. Simply stunning. Very reminiscent of Whistler.
Thanks for your perceptive comment—I’m in good company!
Thank you, Michael.
Just magnificent, I really enjoy your work. Thanks for your continuing support.
Very very nice! I still am amazed at the effect of light you have mastered. And I am not surprised at all you were a photographer, since your pieces have that quality. Sepia-ish!
I still am a photographer, and still “sepia-ish”—thanks for looking and liking.
Beautiful work. I love your landscapes, and enjoyed reading your article. It looks like a couple of the links to pages are broken. Thanks very much for posting, and checking out my blog!
Wow! Thank you so much for introducing me to your work by visiting me at xballerina! What a perfect representation of the life and movement of light in the landscape, by NOT capturing it literally. Really an inspiration. I wish I could use something like this as a back drop/inspiration for a ballet. Are these oil on canvas or? Cheers!
Thanks for viewing–yes, most are oil on canvas, the smaller ones are oil on panel, I would love to see you dance with my painting as a back drop..
Maurice, thanks for taking the time to view and like my blog today. Really enjoyed coming and viewing your landscapes. I love the ethereal feel to your work. Cheers Sue
Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post, Maurice. So glad to have come across your work because I absolutely love it – your landscapes are right up my alley. Great stuff – take care.
Terrific work Maurice!
Thank you, Chris.
My favourite is ‘Red Clouds Reflected’. Its the way you use colour and light to capture unexpected and fleeting moments that convey gentle aspects of the forces of nature.
Thank you for liking my post Alien Landscape II otherwise I might not have found your stunning art. I look forward to viewing more of your site.
Lovely work Maurice. Marvelous.What a treat for the eyes. I plan to return when I have more time.
Thank you for visiting my site.
I love your dreamlike landscapes Maurice!
Bravo Maurice. Bravo. 🙂
Now I have seen new fantastic works from you and you are a magician of light! Yes, you are one of the great painters! I admire your skill!
thanks Babsi for these wonderful comments. You are one of the greatest friends !!!
