Artist of the moment… Stock Schlueter…



this artist made the incredible landscape you see on the cover of the September edition of American Art Collector. By far my favorite art magazine continually inspiring me to try new and creative ways in which to work. The artist shows at John Pence Gallery in San Fransisco. The cover piece is the third from the top.

As an artist his play of light is spot on but more importantly is his painting of skies. He paints air. Nothing wrong with painting the sky lighter or darker than it appears to enhance the mood you would like to create. Having lived in Montana and seeing the works of Russell Chatham whom I wrote about previously, grey clouds can set a very quiet and reflective mood. This artist when painting the Eel Valley painting that is on the front of the magazine for me it reminds me of being outside just after a quiet rain storm, the air is heavy and the sunlight feels extra warm since the cool wet rain has passed.

Very good compositions as well. Mainly the artist paints the outdoor landscapes found in California but I threw in the piece with model planes and airplanes just to show how diverse the artist is.

The artist was born in 1949. Attended college at University of Northern Colorado.

Is very prolific as far as output and likes to contrast greys with bright outbursts of color, his skies are very moody and dramatic.

If you have some moments at Barnes and Nobles be sure and check out the latest issue of American Art Collector to see his cover piece.

Always create!
