Craig Watts Exhibits at Highland Beach Library

Emerging artist Craig Watts will be exhibiting his paintings at the Highland Beach Library in March.  His ability to illuminate landscapes is inspiring and we find his perspective innovative. Craig’s goal is to preserve a moment in time to enhance other’s appreciation for the unspoiled beauty of God’s creation. The Rickie Report urges you to go to this exhibit and meet Craig at the Public Reception. More details are in this article.



Craig Watts Fine Art






The strength and grace of trees, the energy that breathes from low country salt marshes, and the warmth of sunlight at dawn or dusk are the signatures of Craig Watts’s art. 



"Sunset in the Florida Keys"

Craig’s paintings are inspired by his love of nature and fond memories of family vacations spent in the coastal low country of the Southeast and the majestic high country of the western United States. 




"Shadows on the Marsh"

Craig’s grandmother was a professional artist and his father is an accomplished sculptor, yet Craig discovered his gift of painting relatively late in life.  After a successful career as the President of three furniture design and manufacturing companies, Craig redirected his creative talent to painting. He is fortunate to have the opportunity to study under renowned artist Miles Laventhall. Craig is a member of the American Impressionist Society, Inc.


"Watering Hole, Drink Station at the Marathon"

Craig tells The Rickie Report, “I find myself so deeply absorbed when painting, that I experience a liberating freedom as the colors and images flow from my brush to the canvas. It is my hope and prayer that my art brings a sense of joy and spiritual awareness for the beauty of God’s creation.”


"Autumn's Dawn"

“Autumn’s Dawn”


Ancient live oaks draped with Spanish moss, salt marshes intersected by tidal estuaries and sprawling stands of Aspen trees fill Craig’s canvases.  Craig’s goal is to preserve a moment in time to enhance other’s appreciation for the unspoiled beauty of God’s creation. 


"Swimming Through"

Craig shares, “Painting has sharpened my awareness and appreciation of the grandeur and beauty of the great outdoors.  Painting lifts my heart and spirit as the canvas comes alive from something that until then, was hidden inside my mind and soul.  Painting is my praise offering to God for all of His blessings in my life.  My Christian faith and love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, are my source of strength and peace.  It is my hope and prayer that my painting brings joy to others and honors the love, support and encouragement from my family”.

Observers of Craig’s paintings comment on their luminosity and depth.  Recently, Craig has been inspired to paint animals and flowers in varying styles ranging from  realism to an abstract realism exploring unique color palettes for his compositions.  His loyal dog, Hooper is always present with Craig in the studio.
