Rudolph (Rudy) Colao (1927- 2014)
Rudy Colao, an artist his entire adult life, always painted as if he was painting for himself. His early work was mostly florals and still-lifes, however he later added seascapes and landscapes, and was equally skilled in all venues. Some of his floral work is unmatched in color, design and the vigor of the paint application. An artist, a teacher, a family man and a friend, Rudy was a valued member of the Rockport, MA art scene.
