Brad Teare is a painter in the tradition of van Gogh. I love the thick application of vibrant paint in his landscapes.
He calls himself a landscape painter, but to me he's more than that.
I think he's a bit of a pioneer in the way he develops his landscapes and the way he thinks about art.
His career has spanned several decades. He's freelanced for the likes of the New York Times, and has done book covers for James Michener and Anne Taylor, and he occasionally teaches art at Weber State University as well. He and his wife shared a studio in Salt Lake City until she passed away in November 2018.
I enjoy reading what he writes about art on his blog and look forward to watching his calm and instructive videos on YouTube very much.
Brad's been on my watch list for quite some time. I hope he'll now be on your watch list too.
You can see him on these fine internet venues.
Now go out and make some ART!
