The Solitary Moose
The Solitary Moose print comes from the Watercolor by Stan Myers in the Mid-90's.
Each print is personally signed by the artist and numbered for this limited edition of 1500.
The distinctive watercolors of Stan Myers are characterized by his meticulous use of detail and his vivid palette. "I use brilliant color," he says, "to capture a feeling of light, the moment of the experience. Light on a surface reveals the object, and I want to convey the mood of a single moment to the onlooker."
Collectors appreciate the accuracy in his carefully executed nautical scenes in which every line of rigging is correctly in place. His paintings sparkle with vibrant blues, radiant whites, bright reds and lush greens.
Born in northwestern Ohio in the mid 1950s, Myers received an associate degree in technology from the Fort Wayne School of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Calvin College. A member of the prestigious American Watercolor Society, he has worked as a freelance artist and private teacher. He has exhibited in Michigan, where he now resides, as well as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. His paintings are included in private, corporate and museum collections throughout the U.S.
The landscapes of Stan Myers have a "peaceful harmony" about them that is apart from the rigors of the daily routine. He delights in finding places to paint that, as he says, open his "eyes and mind to the great richness in Creation — landscapes that provide a variety of interest and character, as well as nostalgia. When people view my work, I would like them to experience a taste of what I have experienced, to share in that moment of life. But, in addition, I would like them to understand that the piece of art is not only an impression or statement of experience, but rather an image that is created to be harmonious in design and composition; that it is a piece of artwork, not a travelogue."
Myers has traveled to Italy several times, recording his impressions in a series of paintings that reflect the old-world architecture, Mediterranean landscape and sunny temperament of the country. As he absorbed the culture, colors, scenery and lifestyle of Italy, he found he was forever changed, emotionally and artistically: "Getting to understand the people and the country gave me a new direction and insight to the special beauty that is around us, not only in Italy, but everywhere."
Myers is an artist who continually seeks beauty in order to share it with others through his unique work.
