Kevin says his muse is “Western and will always be Western.” He loves painting the north and southwest and particularly enjoys the opportunity to get out of civilization and into nature where he can paint and not see another soul. “There is a sense of solitude to the vast panoramas of the Western landscape,” Kevin says. “There’s a rugged beauty of the Western landscape that I really am drawn to, whether it’s the low Sonoran deserts of Arizona, the canyon lands of Utah, the coastlines of California, or the high alpine mountains of Idaho and Wyoming. I love the north and southwest and all its many variations. It never fails to inspire me. I find more beauty in the majestic tall pines of Idaho than in any of the great cathedrals of Europe.”
