Jeff Kolker Featured Artist
Jeff Kolker is an amazing digital artist who paints so well with his digital materials that I often find it hard to distinguish the artwork from traditional works.
Jeff says in his own words, "Self taught, I use the computer to paint. I've always been interested in computers since I first worked on one way back in high school. And I've always had an appreciation for art, as my mother is an accomplished painter. Merging the two, what you see are the results. Digital work that looks hopefully like a traditional painting."
Jeff goes on to say, "My paintings are mostly places I've been, preserving the memory and sharing them with the world. I love to travel, seeing and experiencing new things. Painting the things I see reflect the wonder I had when I first saw them. I hope that when people see my works, they think the subject matter is interesting, whether or not they like the painting."
My favorite of Jeff's works is hard to select - he has so much beautiful work from all around the world, but this is one I really love -:
I like the reflections in the window which to me is the focal point of the cabin, and yet the cabin itself is charming. I do have a penchant for old cabins, and Jeff has done a wonderful job of bringing out the wooden structure.
Please visit Jeff Kolker as I promise you a wonderful visit all around the globe, and yet the artwork is rich in tone and color, so grab your coffee, relax and wander by clicking below.
