Coleman Fine Art in Charleston, SC Introduces Works by Kim Weiland

Coleman Fine Art in Charleston, SC, has just received new watercolors by Kim Weiland, an Ocean City, NJ artist.

Weiland's desire to paint surfaced at an early age where with the support and encouragement from his parents led to private study with local artist Anthony Trezza, and further instruction with Pat Witt, a South Jersey painter. He also studied at the Tyler College of Art where he had the opportunity to study for a year abroad in Italy. In June of 1976, graduating from Tyler with a BFA, Weiland relocated to Ocean City, NJ. Here the serene influences of the coast soon found a stronghold in his style and subject matter.

Weiland works almost exclusively in watercolor because the transparent qualities of the medium respond well to his study of color and light. The subject of the sea is a dominating influence in his work as the scope of his painting tells the ever-changing story of the East coast.

"My paintings, watercolors and oils reflect many things: The last thirty years of a love affair with God's ocean and everything near it. After many long years, these are rewarding times for me as a painter. The years of persistence and perseverance have led me closer to my goal. I have come to understand that with the mark in sight, sometimes it is better to tack and sail with the breeze than to point upwind hopelessly," states Weiland.
