Biography from Coeur d'Alene Galleries, LLC:
Artist Statement:

One of the advantages of living in the Pacific Northwest is the spectacular scenery. I am often awestruck by the beauty, complexity and diversity that surround me. I see the fingerprints of a creative God everywhere, from the last glow of golden light on Mt. Rainier to the sparkle of a meandering meadow stream. This inspires me to attempt to capture the essence of a particular setting or a moment in time, and share that with others through my paintings.

I like to use the effects of early morning or late afternoon lighting to bring out the more dramatic saturated colors and transform a seemingly ordinary setting. The challenge for me is to capture the patterns and contrasts between the warm light and cool shadows. I often try to isolate and focus in on scenes that others might normally overlook and give viewers a little different perspective.

As long as I can remember I have wanted to be an artist. This has encompassed several different areas design, decorating, gardening, painting. My earlier landscapes were executed in a tight, almost photo-realistic manner. The turning point began after seeing the work of the French Impressionists in Paris. I was attracted by the brighter colors, freshness and spontaneity of their paintings. In recent years I have been drawn to the Russian and Early California Impressionists. While my work is still representational, I have loosened and softened my approach. By not defining every leaf or blade of grass, viewers have more opportunity to interact and use their imagination, making them a part of the creative process.

David was born in northern California. He studied at Art Center College of Design, Biola University and the Scottsdale Artist´s School. Recently he has taken workshops with the Plein-Air Painters of America and Scott Christensen. David has spent the past 24 years in the Pacific Northwest. He and his wife, Jean reside in Edmonds and have five children, including two boys from Bulgaria.
