    Frank Milby

    Frank Milby, originally from Queens, New York City, began his painting career as a portrait artist in Greenwich Village and New Orleans. He then moved to Provincetown, where he has been living for the past thirty-five years. Initially, he continued as a portrait artist at the "Starving Artist Studio", but gradually his work expanded into many different genres. He continually surprises his viewers with a vast number of subject matters, moods and palettes. In spring, he is excited by the multitude of native flowers, anxious to capture the lilacs before their short season takes them away. In winter, his somber palette of grays and blues depict scenes of thick clouds and foggy seascapes. He is drawn to fishing boats, lonely Truro houses, seagulls, trees, bowls of fruit and figures, as well. The unusual diversity of Milby's painting continues to arouse our interest and respect.
