About the Artist:
Painting in the tradition of au plein air, Ken translate the beauty and poetry of his surroundings in watercolor. He believes, just as the plein air painters of the early 20th Century believed, “that nature is revelation and that art is the medium of interpretation.” He also believes, as those early painters did, “in scenic location and in the power and spirit of place.”

"I often use and/or combine different types of water-soluble pigments, such as dyes, stains and watercolor crayons. My current objective is to incorporate a method used by past master painters – the monotype which is neither a print nor a painting, but a unique combination of both."

In addition to this print which benefits the Reno Philharmonic, Ken's prints are available at the Nevada Museum of Art, and directly from his website.
