Artist Kennith Humphrey of Vicksburg, Mississippi, has gained national and international recognition, and has therein realized his dream as a professional painter. Asked to describe his art and the style in his paintings, he explained, “I don't call them paintings, I call them 'sketches' because they capture a fleeting moment. My art is not realism, not finite, not exact. It is an escape from realism, an interpretation of the moment. I don't call it a certain style. It’s free flowing, being myself. It’s my quick interpretation, like the click of the camera with brush and paint. I want to paint how people are at that moment. “ Definite strains of impressionism inform Humphrey's strokes as do the movement and rhythm of music.
