Artist Statement: Jan Klassen
My imaginary landscapes have the feeling of a moment in time, without interference from mankind. I love earth tones, rocks, sunsets and trees. The southwest landscape is what most often inspires me. However, my paintings are more abstract than realistic because I am playing with my imagination. I paint spontaneously, waiting for the paint to speak to me, allowing me to find new frontiers as I create. Hopefully, there is a connection to the divine.

I work in acrylic and oil and often add texture with paper or other texturizing mediums.
I love painting in a class setting with other painters, sharing the struggles and joys of creating art.
