"Jason Hanck is an artist to watch. He has a flair for painting large dramatic seascapes with a dreamy romantic feeling. Jason's sensitivity to the subtleties in wave patterns and currents is born from a lifetime of rowing and surfing in Laguna Beach. His paintings can be seen at the Sawdust Art Festival and Bahamas Home Store in Newport's Fashion Island. I have mentored Jason for the past three years. His masterful painting skills have developed quickly. I believe his understanding of technique and form is an auspicious indication of dramatic paintings to come."
