Robert C. Jackson (b. 1964 Kinston, NC) is a contemporary realist still life artist. The path that brought him to this full-time and fulfilling career as an artist is somewhat varied and unusual. Robert graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Electrical Engineering in 1986 and proceeded to work as a systems engineer designing radio systems for Motorola for the next 5 years. He left engineering, not for painting, but for the ministry working at Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, MD as an assistant pastor for the next 6 years. Since 1997 Robert has been painting full time and exhibiting his work in various galleries from coast to coast.

Presently, Robert lives in Kennett Square, PA with his wife and three children.

The balloon animals smoking bubble pipes made me sooo happy - thank you Cheryl Ann for putting it together that it's the dogs-playing-poker concept in balloon animals - I was too in love with balloon critters blowing bubbles to put it together. :)

Oh my goodness, the DINOSAURS! I love these. It would probably be really fun to live with one of these paintings. There definitely is something Rockwell about his work, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

I love it, I can't even choose my favorite :)

Claire Kiefer said...

Funny that these successfully make me want a donut, but the pics of the apples don't have the same effect, dammit.
