Bennett StrahanThe earth, horizon line and sky are my background, my individual perception of balance and harmony that we who walk the earth's surface are exposed to every day.

"As I paint, I think about the beauty we tread on, grounded by that strong horizon line that has no beginning or end. Color is my love, my vehicle, and it's a direct reflection of what I think and feel about what I see as I experience nature - that ever-changing dance of form and color reflected between the earth, myself, and the sky.

"I'm influenced by what I see around me day to day and season to season. My love of the country we live in is immense. The evolution of wet to dry cycles in our different regions provide a marvelous backdrop for my work."

- Bennett B. Strahan
