Although Don is a serious artist, some of his work leans toward the lighter side, exposing the artist's lively sense of humor. Such is the case with his "Chick Series" . He places baby chicks in unusual situations and with the sense of humor and a play on words, comes up with an equally unusual and descriptive title bringing a smile to the viewer, no matter what the age. The "Marble Series" is another lighthearted look at one of a child's favorite games back when things were simple.
Don Grzybowski's art exemplifies his dedication to, and skill in the medium of pastel, although he is not limited to that media. His style can vary from loose and sketchy, even impressionistic, to an appearance of very fine detail. Whichever style he uses, he draws the viewer into an intimate relationship with the painting, creating a feeling of involvement.
