Artist of the moment… landscape and figure painter Dan McCaw….

This artist also has 2 sons that have painterly careers.

Dan is known for painting Impressionistic works of figures in subdued or hazy light. McCaw was born in 1942 in Butte, Montana.  The artist went to college at the San Francisco Academy of Art and the Art Center of Design in Los Angeles.

He gave praise to the Ab Ex movement as well as certain painters like Klimt for not just painting what was in front of him but painting feeling  as well.

I love the fast bold bravado brush strokes used by the artist.

If you ever get the chance to see this artists’ work in person please do so. The layering of colors in person is so impressive!
