I have always been fascinated by the sky. It's constantly changing - seeming alive. These abstract landscapes are created with a palette knife. Some layers are added thick and impasto, and others are added by applying the paint, then scraping it off, revealing the color underneath. This is one painting in a series of abstract landscapes dealing with the spirit realm. This one, 'Kindred', speaks visually of God's goodness, how He calls us His own and we belong to Him..
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."
