Although he is part of an artistic family, Chris is entirely self-taught. He favors landscapes from the areas around his home in north-central New Mexico.
The incredible detail in his paintings elevate them from merely realistic to other-worldly.
The powerful sense of serenity and depth here produces an almost unreal feeling.
It looks like a fairyland setting, but we can almost smell the evergreens, hear the rushing water, and feel the slight breeze that ripples the water.
Chris’s paintings demonstrate a singular mastery and beautifully poetic atmosphere.
Cool forests and rushing water: this is the perfect painting to refresh a hot summer’s day, and to promise an end to the chill of winter.
