Pacifico Palumbo Fine Art
Colrain, MA 01340
I enjoy painting as well as I enjoy working in Neon and Sculpture. I consider myself to be a realist, but with a bit of fantasy thrown in. I like to paint scenes of my home, my garden, my animals, things we collect, our beautiful neck of the woods, friends, as well as anything else that I may be interested in.
I’ve been a professional writer and editor for nearly 45 years, winning dozens of awards along the way. More importantly, though, my passion has been to explore life’s mysteries, contradictions and magic with hundreds of people, often helping them discover the deeper themes of their lives within that they may not have even realized were there … and then sharing those stories.
