Profile: Marc Hanson
Right or Left 24 x 30" Oil on linen
Marc Hanson communicates his love of the natural world through his evocative oil and pastel paintings. He works outdoors, on-location in all seasons of the year, bringing his plein air studies into the studio to create larger works. He also teaches workshops throughout the United States as well as from his own studio in Taylors Falls, Minnesota. Marc says about his work:
"One of the reasons that I’m a visual artist is that it has always been more
effective for me to share my excitement about the natural world through visual means,
painting or drawing, than it has been through writing or speaking about it. My love of
the land, the Midwest in particular, and my desire to communicate that deep seeded
love is what drives my work. Painting is the vehicle for my expression of that love. My
purpose is not to replicate the specific or dwell on the spectacular, as much as it is to
observe the specific and to discover the beauty in the seemingly unspectacular. My
goal is to paint a sense of place and what that means to me as an artist."

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler is an ultra-light tool that fits most easels, and creates a great platform for your palette. Replaces bulky, rigid shelves and attachments. Mounts in seconds. It can even mount on the side two legs rather than the front to allow more room to be closer to your painting. We like it so much we keep one in every painting kit! Also in our Store: Check out the tools and other products that we use in our own art and travels. We only offer things for sale in our Store that we enthusiastically believe in.
