QSAG Artists - Peter Dion

Peter is a retired anesthesiologist with no formal art education. Over the years he has taken courses with Tony Ackerman, John Pyjl, and Jim Kerr, and (Covid permitting) paints with the Dawn Art Works group started by John Pyjl and Tena Schuyler.

Originally a strict watercolourist, he has in recent years concentrated on acrylic. His main interest is in landscapes/cityscapes, and much of his works deal with scenery in the Czech Republic, a county whose beauty is not yet fully appreciated in North America.

Peter regards a painting successful if it makes the viewer once again appreciate the beauty of the world around us. His style is simple and direct. His goal is to portray nature's splendor without allowing his technique to become the focus of the work.
