"Now In: Howard Behrens' Biography I feel a tremendous amount of excitement facing a new canvas. This energy comes from the thrill of transforming it into a recollection of my travels to the world's most beautiful and romantic places. As an Expressionist, I paint fast while the passion for the painting is very strong. For me, the paint is the subject matter just as much as the image. I love the juicy chunks of color that I can translate to canvas with my palette knife ." --Howard Behrens"

"After visiting Giverny, France, last year, the artist created a "Tribute to Monet" series that was exhibited at the Embassy of France in Washington, D. C. As an official artist for the 2002 Winter Olympics, Behrens' painting, "In Motion," was featured at the games. The artist's works are owned by numerous, well-known collectors and are in the permanent collections of many museums. The most recent Behrens' collectors are former President George Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush.

Behrens and his wife, Judi, travel the world - Italy, Bermuda, Mexico, across America - to many of their favorite places filled with Celebrate romance with Behrens, a poet sculpting paint on canvases that are alive with color, and join him on a romance with the sun that will never end. Though born in Chicago, he is a longtime resident of the Washington, D. C. area. The artist's works are published and distributed as limited editions by Behrens International Group, LLC"
