Malcolm Curtis Ross, he preferred  Curt, “liked to experience direct contact with his subject matter” and enjoyed his extensive gardens and forest from May to October.  Madrones were a favorite subject as he tried to capture their varied colors through the four seasons.

“Curt’s paintings provided openings; allowing viewers to enter them, travel within them, and interpret their own experiences of them. If art is an expression of life, then Malcolm Curtis Ross certainly enjoyed the life he led with art, ” Kathryn Ross

A long-time resident of San Juan Island, Curt’s work was often seen at the Duck Soup Restaurant,  Waterworks Gallery and is in private collections.  He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago and The Art Students League in New York City.
