Waltzes With Giants is now a selection of the Children's Book-of-the-Month Club!
Welcome to our online art galleries representing selected works by the artist.
Peter C. Stone's Tonalist / Impressionist landscape & seascape paintings and giclée prints have been described as '...luminous spiritual journeys...' that celebrate nature and the wisdom of indigenous traditions.
Weaving together nature writing with the creative dynamics of art and science, the artist's books and oil paintings explore environmental topics (conservation, endangered species, sustainability, forestry, tribal lands programs, national parks), botanical gardens, horticulture, and the healing power of trees, Native American wisdom, principles of ocean literacy, shamanism, cross-cultural symbols, and mythology.
Outdoor enthusiasts and fine art lovers will be intrigued by contemporary paintings of Right Whales, Common Trees of North America, Sacred Cows and Landscapes, New England Rivers, Condors in the Southwest, the Coasts of Maine and Atlantic Canada, and Seascapes in the Arctic and Antarctic.
The evocative observations and probing questions of his new illustrated book, Waltzes with Giants, The Twilight Journey of the North Atlantic Right Whale, will interest educators and scientists, young adults and adults. Curriculum-supporting materials will be useful for enriching classroom activities and lessons in a range of subjects: science (biology, physics, ecology), math and geography, english and creative writing, history and social studies, nature and health, art and native studies.
Mr. Stone's approach to Art & Science Nature Journaling supports the STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math) education model. His in-school workshops are designed to meet requirements for Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for Arts and English Language Arts.
