Domfort’s rendition of the Rockaway Beachfront. The budding artist never took a brush to hand prior to six years ago. While Rockaway is one of his favorite subjects, he credits the members of the RAA with broadening his horizons.
Senior Citizen Jack Domfort has been a Rockaway resident for more than 50 years. About six years ago, his wife, Phyllis, convinced him that he needed a hobby and suggested painting. Domfort said that he worked with Walter Gurbo for some time and then switched to Geoff Rawling, the president of the Rockaway Artists Alliance. “That’s when I reached my potential,” he said.
This bucolic lake in upstate New York caught Domfort’s eye.
