Michael Kraniski

Michael M. Kraniski

Michael is best known for his “Skyscape” paintings, and for his use of a strong color palette.Michael feels that the most interesting element in a landscape painting is the sky.

After graduating from the Cleveland Institute of Art, one the nation’s leading art and design institutes, Michael persued a successful design career, winning numerous awards in both the U.S., and Europe, he has returned to his original passion – the fine arts.

“A landscape is static, and of little interest until the sky acts upon it. The sky sets the mood.It controls the color and light of the landscape, and provides a sense of movement to the painting.”
