Artist, Photographer, Musician, Songwriter....Michael Todd Morrison
My works have been shown throughout the United States, US Virgin Islands, Italy, and South America. For the fourth year, Michael's works are showing at the USDA Gallery, through December of 2017 in Washington, D.C. He recently won first place for the third year in a row and his artwork is on display through the end of the year at the USDA Gallery, 1400 Independence Ave SW, Washington, D.C. My creations benefit foundations such as Todd Rundgren's Spirit of Harmony Foundation and several others.
I work mostly in acrylic on canvas, gesso board, and other surfaces. I love to think outside the box, and determined to find new ways to expand my Utopia of art into many medias and directions. My focus is on landscapes and abstracts. I use bright colors in my painting to create a bold statement. You can see my lifetime of traveling experiences all over the world displayed prominently in my art. I also have been taking award winning photography for over 50 years. Influences in my art: Ivana, Todd Rundgren, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Rush, Larry W. King, Winston Churchill, Dale Carnegie, and the rest of my family. Painting artists include Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dali, Pino, Andriana Galoppi, and Corrado Cascioli (Italy).
Originally from Texas and currently living in the Raleigh area. My passions are the arts, sustainability, the environment, horticulture, and foundations that move my spirit and yours to give. My paintings reflect my passion and intensity for life; and my imagination moves this to the canvas. I treat my love and true friends as I do my works of art; I place them in their best light! Shine on! -Michael Todd Morrison
