Nothing But the Weather
18 x 24 inches
Greg Scheibel has always felt a strong connection to the outdoors. Throughout his life, he has spent a great deal of time hiking, fishing, backpacking, and closely observing his surroundings, which has led to a deep appreciation for the remote locations and unspoiled beauty of the West. These experiences are the main inspiration for his paintings. Greg paints on location as much as possible, trying to capture an honest record of values, color, and feel of an area. The emotional connection to nature, which is the result of these field studies, is the foundation for all his work.
Greg was a drywall contractor for many years, always with a dream of someday taking his passion for art to the next level. Years of drawing, pouring over art books, collecting and studying paintings of artists he admired, and a general accumulation of life's experiences contribute to what he puts into his paintings. Although still relatively new to the professional art world, he began selling his work in 2005 and became a fulltime artist in 2007. He shows his work in several of the West's finest galleries and has been invited or juried into a number of prestigious shows. He has received several awards for his work and scholarships from the Scottdale Artist School. He has received an Award of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America on three separate occasions, and was recently awarded signature membership in that organization. He has been listed as an "Artist to Watch" in Southwest Art Magazine, and has been featured in Western Art Collector.
With a strong work ethic, continual study and a genuine passion for expanding his abilities as an artist, he is truly excited about his career as a painter. Greg lives in Bozeman, Montana with his wife and two children.
