Ready to Hang
The works of Cezanne, Matisse, O’Keefe, Gauguin, and Renoir influences me. I am influenced by their interpretive style and their philosophies on color and design.
Like many artists, I paint out of emotion. My work is about color and light and I am trying to push what I can do constantly and always trying more difficult subjects, perspectives, arrangements, lighting, and color schemes. All of the failures and challenges that occur when I paint don’t hinder my success because when I see the final result, it brings such joy and I know that all the hard work and dedication was all worth it.
Inspired by the baristas and bakers who help with the morning's stresses.
My name is Anthony Stenberg. After teaching art for the past nine years at the Elementary, Middle School and High School levels, I have found that the years of art instruction has given me a deeper understanding of art and design. Not only has teaching deepened my understanding, creating art has been a way for me to release some of life’s stresses. I search for subjects that I find beautiful and give me a sense of peace. I paint what I love, whether it’s in a hot or cold studio or on a dangerous cliff overlooking the ocean, I paint subjects that are beautiful and introspective. Drawn from life experiences, where I have lived as well as being inspired by nature both aesthetically and for conservation. I have shown in various galleries, museums, and venues for over 20 years. My artwork is in collections throughout the world. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
