Testimonials

 “Daniel Ambrose is a self taught representational artist who paints the vanishing coastal environments of Florida in richly painted egg tempera works of great mood and atmosphere.”  Museum of Arts and Sciences, Executive Director Emeritus, Gary Libby

“I just saw the Turner exhibit at the Met Mus. in NYC. YOUR sky has the similar abstract beauty we experienced with Turner. Thank God (seriously) someone in this century is giving us this.” F.P.M.

“Daniel Ambrose’s Moon Dreams recalls the American Luminist painters of the mid 19th century, who attempted to capture dramatic or mysterious lighting effects for awe-inspiring impact.”  James J. Murphy / Plein Air to Post Modern, Curator statement.

“So beautiful. So ethereal it makes me step right into the scene and breath the fresh air. You are a Master.” Joan E.

“The scene is like another lifetime. Very strong and yet beautiful.” Judy

“Lovely landscapes that are serene and almost spiritual.”  Sondra
