Ready to Hang

This piece represents a mountainous landscape. However dark the night is, the sun will rise. Each new day is a new beginning, a fresh start.

This abstract work was created using painting knives. The end result was a process of layering color after color. Some layers were applied with thick amounts of paint, others, the paint was applied, then scraped off.

Nathan Rhoads is an artist working in Portland, Oregon. He earned his BFA in 1998 from Point Loma Nazarene University. His primary medium of choice is oil. Nathan's work ranges from abstract to representational. He is a live painter, creating beautiful works of art on the spot at events. He takes on a lot of commissioned projects too, and lately, has been painting beautiful pet portraits. The spirit realm is his muse. Most of his work deals with the spirit realm whether it be representational or abstract in nature. When not painting, he spends time with his 2 boys and dog exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest. His favorite art quote is from Chuck Close: "Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work."
