I ran across Andy Knutson's booth at the Pride of Dakota Showcase last weekend. I had always been aware of his work and he had done a commissioned piece for my relatives, but I thought I would feature him on my blog for you to enjoy. His work isn't exactly my style or taste for decorating purposes, but you can not deny the talent of this local artist. And the PATIENCE it must take to complete his work...the guy paints on feathers for goodness sake! There may be debate in the art community, but in my opinion, realistic artists have an ability that is to be appreciated. (and no, I'm not going to hang a Terry Redlin in my living room)
But for all the cowboys, ranchers, outdoor enthusiasts, etc. in the area, take a peek at Andy Knutson's work and support a local artist.
