As a professional oil and watercolor artist, Fritz (nickname) paints in a bold vigorous-personal style. He invites the viewer to look into his world and observe his impressions of traditional New England subjects. His imaginative natural light translates into a luminescent quality while his compositions are dramatic and create an emotional mood. Additionally, his use of fresh colors, glazes and precise brush strokes show virtuosity and mastery of his chosen mediums.
The theme of his paintings cover a wide range of topics from Maine Harbors, Cape Cod dunes, Vermont and New Hampshire ski trails, to Boston cityscapes and historic maritime themes. Fritz finds the importance in sketching scenes on location and developing these into bigger paintings in his Wellesley studio.
Mr. Kubitz is the recipient of many prizes and awards and has been included in the American Watercolor Society’s nationwide tour of museums and places of exhibition. His painting “Center Harbor, New Hampshire” was published on the cover of Yankee Magazine and in 2016 he won the Rudolph Schaefer Maritime Heritage Award in the International Marine Art Exhibition at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.
As a long time boat owner and sailor, Fritz has plied the waters off the coasts of Massachusetts and Maine. That experience gave him a great respective for the sea, and an understanding and appreciation of boating, its craftsmanship and details.
