Clark Sheppard, Celebrating Sedona’s Magic and Beauty – with award-winning, “Whimsical Landscape Art,” paintings in Oil/Acrylic/Watercolor.
Since moving from N.J. in 2002 to Sedona, Arizona, I’ve delighted in being immersed in the magical presence that is so palpable in Sedona. I’m ever so grateful to be living my life and creating my whimsical landscape art in this most spiritual and wondrous place. I love the fact that I’m never at a loss for what I’ll be painting next. There’s just so much inspiration coming from all directions and all levels, from magnificent 360-degree landscapes that I witness on my hikes, to the abundance of like-minded and like-hearted folks with congruent spiritual mindsets.
Since the licensing of my art to Warner Bros., I’ve been looking to develop a specialized niche utilizing my vibrant color palette, for which I’m known. Having learned about an offer for a “Modern Abstract” workshop here in Sedona at the Sedona Art Center, I knew it was time to expand my horizons farther. I’ve dubbed my new style “Whimsically Abstracting the Landscape Sky”. I always start with the sky and let the rest of the painting fall out of me! When you see my art in person, it has a 3-D look to it, because of the vivid contrast created by my intentional color choice, and placement of specific colors next to one another.
Most recently, having been discovered by Nimin Chen, owner of 2 Southern California Art Galleries, I had the honor of showing 12 of my original paintings in Guangzhou, China. Having sold 4 of my original paintings, on the opening night to private collectors, humbled me.
Former President George W. Bush is a proud owner of my award-winning “Patriotic Longhorns.” My art has been featured in SouthwestArt Magazine, Cowboys & Indians, American Cowboy, Texas Monthly, and True West magazines. Additionally, numerous local Sedona newspapers, art gallery guides, and magazines have featured Sedona Art Studios with articles and photographs of my work. Sedona Art Studios is proud to have sponsored “Sedona International Film Festival.” My original watercolor of “Goulding’s Stagecoach” hangs in the “Stagecoach” restaurant at Gouldings Lodge in Monument Valley, AZ.
