About the artist: This year we offer an opportunity to own a permanent connection to wild rivers through the unique art of western landscape artist and river runner, Greg McFadden. Greg’s love of rivers has led him from his home in Fraser, Colorado to the rivers of Idaho and the Grand Canyon. He is a plein aire painter, meaning he paints from life on the river, absorbing all the sights, sounds, from temperature to atmosphere and channels those feelings from head to hand, re-creating the vision in paints on paper or canvas. And he adds a special element to each work, "My concept is to express these rare landscapes, seen only by a limited number of people, through integrating the colors we see with the purest natural element, water... I believe that by using the actual water from these sites, there is a somehow sacred aspect to each piece holding a glimpse of the beauty and inspiration so abundantly felt there." Each piece is painted in one session, on site, and with one vessel of water from that river. The result is a recreation of the light, reflections and time of day of that location.
