These two impressionists create an intimate narraitive of people and experiences for the viewer to be taken in by. Although both Michael Fitzpatrick and Michael Maczuga are masterful figuartive oil painters, they glean inspiration from different sources. Maczuga, a long time children's swim coach travels the world, capturing children at play, in festivals, and exploring and learning about thier world. Fitzpatrick's muses play between singers, dancers, street buskers and recently, the whimsy of the circus.
