Paint the Parks

"Inspired and delighted by the beauty of landscape, I try to express the awe and wonder I feel through a variety of media on paper.  I am fascinated with the effects of light on the colors and textures of the landscape, and with the rhythms and patterns of the shapes therein.   I wish to evoke in the viewer some of the pleasure, peace and joy I feel when experiencing and contemplating our natural world in the form of the landscape."

I have loved visiting these glorious places and making art about them throughout my career. A great deal of my work depicts parks around the country, particularly in the western states. I am pleased to join the movement of artists who "Paint the Parks" and donate a portion of proceeds to the preservation of parks or education about them. Not all of my park creations are represented on this page - please feel free to browse my site for other work in the medium you favor. I will honor the 10% donation on any piece depicting a park, reserve or refuge that is purchased from the site, even if it is not featured on this page. Enjoy!

Purchases of any art on this page will support America's State and National Parks, Preserves, Wildlife Refuges, etc. 10% of all sales will be sent directly to the support group of the location depicted in the artwork. This program "Paint the Parks" is the dream of Karin Leonard. You can read more about this program, and view the art of other participating artists, at www.painttheparks.com.
