The artist devoted his life, heart and soul to the painting. As well as to the others he was demanding to himself too. Nature was the artist’s way and the teacher where he discerned the good and the beauty, gained the inner balance and inspiration for paintings. In his works using both oil and pastel technique Marcis Stumbris painted in all genres – portrait, still life, nude, figurative, and the art of social genre, but especially in landscape. As a realist he had to immerse in the environment which he immortalized in colours, feel the mood and atmosphere. The artist was quite reserved but at the same time intelligent and peaceful.
