art instruction videos



Ed Labadie’s current creations combine color, contrast, dynamic composition, and abstraction to entice the eye and intrigue the mind. Geometric shapes pull viewers into paintings initially, and further study rewards them with hidden subject matter coupled with a sense of discovery. Equally comfortable in watercolor, acrylic or oils, Labadie uses each medium to its maximum.

Labadie’s works are notable for their vibrant colors, creating memorable impressions with viewers, elevating his art from simple depictions to personal visions. A collection of more traditional watercolors explores a wide variety of subject matter wherever people, places or events spark his interest throughout his extensive travels. He is an award-winning artist and his contemporary abstracts, scenic outdoor images, and wildlife works hang in corporate and private collections in the U.S. and New Zealand.

Please visit the gallery to view a variety of original creations, or contact the artist if you have specific requests or would like to discuss commissioned paintings.
