The Art of Ken Musselman


It never ceases to amaze how many talented people there are in the world, particularly in the realm of art.


At a recent outdoor fundraising event at Arrowhead, in Western Massachusetts, I was privileged to meet Ken Musselman.

Arrowhead is the former home of the New England author Herman Melville.

Ken is an immensely talented artist with a friendly and kind personality.

 (Here is the artist who created all the paintings in this post----Ken Musselman.)

Originally from Ohio, he now resides in East Canaan, Connecticut.
He has been painting virtually all of his life.

 (Unfortunately, the round circles are dust spots that were inside my camera, which has since been sent away for repair. They do not appear on the painting.)

Ken graciously gave me permission to show his work on this blog and for that I am extremely grateful. 

 It's always great sharing art that I love with fellow bloggers.

Ken is master when he has a paintbrush in his hand.


Whether his paintings are depicting a  container of  fresh blueberries and a nearby bottle of cream,  a scene at a country fair or flowering plants against a white picket fence, they are detailed and meticulously done.


Several even have a touch of humor and whimsey.



Okay. For a peek at many more of the artist's paintings and to find out how to contact him, visit his website at:

The following photos are of some of the paintings Ken displayed at Arrowhead. 






 (Once again, the round circles in the above photo are from my camera and do not appear on the painting.)


WHILE DIFFICULT TO NARROW IT DOWN, WHICH OF KEN'S PAINTINGS DO YOU LOVE MOST? ( I am especially drawn to the ones with flowering plants.)

The old rust colored truck is the big winner in my heart.

Hi Susan! How fun to meet the artist who painted all these! I bet he was tickled that you could appreciate them, and wanted to introduce him to all of us.

I love the old barn painting. I like barns...even though I grew up in very far away from rural America. Maybe that's why?

Looks like you had fun :)

I thought all the paintings were wonderful; how great to be able to capture such scenes by painting.

I especially liked the winter pictures; I am always drawn to winter scenes for some reason. The bicycle was appealing also.

Must have been fun to meet the artist and see his art.
