I feel fortunate to have discovered Christopher Reid’s artwork during a local Plein Air Art show a couple of years ago, before his meteoric rise and successes in our regional art scene. Particularly captivating to me are Chris’s depictions of water in all of its myriad forms, shapes, and moods. My gorgeous scene of the Cape Fear River, bridge, and city scape hang where I can see and enjoy it continually, and I never fail to receive comments and compliments on this striking piece. Chris has received too many awards and recognitions to even touch upon in this format, but his work speaks for itself on his website, overshadowed only by the vividness of the pieces in real life.
