Tony Fiser paints exclusively in oils and is an avid plein air painter around the landscape of St Augustine. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City in both painting and sculpture. In the past 10 years he learned in workshops with plein air painters Matt Smith of Arizona, John Budicin of California and Bill Davidson of Atlanta Georgia. "In my paintings I am striving to capture mood by accurately recreating values and the time of day that the painting is happening. It is a celebration of the moment and the paint. Painting for me is about the expression of one's passion for life itself. Painting is simply a craft that one must study and practice continuously to grow in competence. The process is a medium on life itself". A resident of St Augustine, he is a practicing psychotherapist and co-owner of Breakthrough: Counseling and Recovery in Jacksonville, FL.
