FRESH OFF THE EASEL WITH DAVID KIEHM

THE STALKER
11 x 14, Oil on Panel, $2600

ABOUT DAVE

David “Dave” Kiehm’s realistic painting style comes from a lifetime of observing nature first hand. His love of all things wild translate into evocative images meticulously rendered to capture the intricacies of the animals and their world.

Dave was born in upstate New York and moved with his family to Pennsylvania where he graduated from North Penn High School in their Advanced Art Program. During these years, Dave became interested in wildlife and was rarely seen without his binoculars, sketchpad and pencils. After graduating with high honors from the School of Visual Arts in New York City he worked as an illustrator for wildlife magazines including Sports Afield, Field and Stream and Outdoor Life. He worked for ten years as an Art Director for Danbury Mint.

Dave has been honored with awards nationally and internationally including the prestigious award: “BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year.” The Judges said his painting, Foundation Wall, “…stood out in a competitive category because of its lovely composition, exquisite detail and excellent depiction of light.”

Dave has traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe to observe wildlife and wild places for subjects for his paintings. These paintings have been shown at Marwell International Wildlife Society, UK, Roger Tory Peterson Institute Museum, The Houston Museum of Natural History, The Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, and The Nature in Art Gallery and Museum, UK, to name a few.

Dave lives and works in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains of New York with his family, including his golden retriever, Maggie.

FRESH OFF THE EASEL WITH RYAN KIRBY

BOTTOMLAND BACHELORS
30 x 20, Oil on Board, $4,800

The inspiration for this painting came from Ryan’s own experiences of hunting turkeys throughout the Lowcountry. Moving into spring, with his mind drifting more and more towards turkeys, Ryan painted Bottomland Bachelors, trio of southern longbeards stepping out from beneath the shadows of a massive oak tree overtaken by Spanish moss on a springtime evening.

Watch Ryan’s behind the scenes footage and inspiration behind the painting:

Bottomland Bachelors by Ryan Kirby, 30 x 20, Oil on Board, $4,800

 

Ryan is a wildlife artist who seeks to brilliantly recreate iconic moments from the great outdoors. Working with oil paint, his loose brushstrokes and strong compositions capture those extraordinary close encounters with wildlife. Ryan grew up in Illinois farm country, surrounded by row crops and plenty of wildlife. He now resides in Boone, North Carolina with his wife, Kim, and their two children, Rhett and Brooklyn. When he’s not outdoors you can find him in his studio pushing paint and listening to country music. Ryan’s artwork has raised tens of thousands of dollars for conservation groups, whose missions are close to his own heart.

FRESH OFF THE EASEL WITH JIM BORTZ

SEASON OF PLENTY
12 x 12, Oil on Gessobord, $2200

“Spring in Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley is something one has to experience to truly appreciate. The vibrant abundance of life is nothing less than astonishing. Herds of grazing bison dominate the lush landscape as their newborn calves romp and frolic nearby. Small groups of young bulls occasionally knock heads, but for the most part peacefully tolerate each other. The older bulls seem to prefer a little space, lazily filling their bellies with tender new grass and enjoying the relative ‘easy life’ for however long it may last.”

 

Season of Plenty by Jim Bortz, 12×12, Oil on Gessobord, $2200

 

A lifelong outdoorsman, painter Jim Bortz relates his unique experiences in the field through brush and oil paint. Adventures in fly fishing, elk hunting, and backcountry camping all lend an unmistakable authenticity to his work. With a bold impressionistic style built on a foundation of solid drawing skills, Jim’s work strikes a balance of honest believability and a fearless contemporary palette. Making his home in Cody, Wyoming near the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park, he has access to all the subjects he loves to observe and paint. Traversing the wild places of the Rocky Mountain West provides endless opportunities for exploration and inspiration.

To inquire about purchasing, please email Natalie Henderson, SEWE Art Curator.

FRESH OFF THE EASEL WITH DANIEL PORTER

REFLECTING
10 x 12, Oil on Panel, $3500

“Not long ago, after returning from a visit to the river I entered my studio contemplating the quiet beauty and regeneration that comes with spring. I contemplated this alongside our current moment in history. As I settled in and began to mix paint, a peaceful inner resolve began to wash over me bringing me to a place of renewed vision where I would come to accept this time we are living in as a gift. I would take this time to reflect. Reflect on priorities, reflect on my days, reflect on all the great blessings of my life. Reflecting is symbolic of traveling the swift river of life, and realizing the importance of moving into quieter waters for a moment if only to consider the blessings, beauty and peace that is all around us regardless of what is taking place in life’s circumstances.”

 

Daniel, a resident of New Brunswick, Canada, is a student of nature, conservationist and outdoorsman. His work is noted for its attention to unique detail which is tempered and evident by his firsthand knowledge and close experience with the subjects dealt with throughout his work. He is constantly immersed in study gaining ever more insight into his practice in art.

“My influences have changed over the years. I’ve had a wonderful journey learning to define what a truly fine work of art is comprised of. My goal is to be clean and simple in my approach, providing the right amount of information in a piece and leaving room for the minds eye to fill in certain aspects with its own interpretations. This inherently leads people to a much greater connection with the work. Being effective this way means giving my subject a solid sense of place in its environment without overwhelming detail. I consider these key elements in the design, execution and hopefully the ultimate success of my paintings.”
