Bryan Coombes Art

My background as a commercial pilot, mountaineer, traveler and photographer has allowed me to explore painting from many perspectives. The vast spectrum of subjects and all the different ways of painting them excite me like nothing else!

As I go about my daily business, I’m amazed at the profound and simple beauty that surrounds us everywhere. I often ask myself why is our world so beautiful?

When I'm painting I become the observer, I slow down and actually behold it. More than anything else it allows me to slip into the now, the eternal moment that evades us most of the time. While painting I perceive that everything truly is here and now... and the hands on my watch stop.

There are not enough years for me to paint everything I want to paint. Thank goodness my journey is my destination.
