Lance Rudegeair is our April 2012 Artist of Month. His mixed media painting, Don’t Be a Chicken, was a finalist in the animal/wildlife category of The Artist’s Magazine’s 28th Annual Art Competition. “I’m inspired by an appetite for seeing color placed in unusual ways and by creating aesthetic—bringing beauty to the world in the way I see it,” says Rudegeair. “I also find it more valid to use my talents to record the beauty of nature, not necessarily with photographic realism, but by making an aesthetic feeling through the use of paint and other artistic media—making it come alive.”
Committed to conservation efforts, Australian artist Steve Morvell (featured in the February 2012 Pastel Journal) paints wildlife in sensitive pastels that inspire ecological protection—and preservation. View a gallery of his conservation-inspired pastels.
