Ewoud de Groot, 'Resting Avocets'
Although Ewoud de Groot (pronounced A-VOWED) lives and works in Egmond aan Zee, a coastal village in the Northern Netherlands, he is no stranger to 20th-century American artists, ranking Mark Rothko alongside a number of Dutch and Flemish painters who have informed his work. Finding inspiration in his surroundings while fly fishing in favorite Western locations, De Groot images offer refined composition and design paired with dreamy backgrounds. His painting style ensures he has multiple paintings in progress, a method that sparks creativity and cohesion, rather than distraction. Today, de Groot is recognized as a rising star in wildlife painting and has been a featured artist at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY. Oil on Canvas. 27 1/2" x 55" (framed: 31" x 57 1/2"). Signed by the artist. 2018.
