ARTIST: James Corwin

RESIDES: Montana, USA

BIOGRAPHY: James Corwin designs distinct oil paintings through a unique balance of gestural paint techniques and precise detail. Primarily focused on wildlife Corwin aims to engage the viewer through his dynamic compositions that stir emotion.

With an appreciation for both fine detail and contemporary art, Corwin exquisitely marries the two in each painting with detailed subjects and loosely constructed backgrounds often exposing the underpainting and raw canvas.

Corwin gathers inspiration and references from his frequent travels to exotic destinations around the world. A trip to South Africa opened his eyes to threats of poaching on wildlife. Frequent trips back to Africa have allowed James to work directly with conservation efforts and starting the first Rhino Breeding Project.

Corwin has established himself as a widely collected artist at a very young age. His artwork is collected nationally and internationally as he participates in prestigious exhibitions and auctions throughout the year. He is the youngest artist to ever participate in both Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International in Las Vegas.

Typically he paints 10-12 hours per day, 7 days a week. He also has two studios overlooking the white sandy beaches of Long Island, NY and located in Lakeside, MT overlooking Flathead Lake and the Swan Mountain Range.

By providing utmost quality and innovation in his painting, Corwin creates a sustaining legacy of integrity and loyalty in his art and conservation.

Corwin was born June 24, 1991 in Honolulu, HI.

Corwin was voted 2nd Best Artist of the Flathead 2015.

Regeneration Pine
by Charity Dakin
"Nature is a wonder. I'll pass by an object, having seen it a hundred times before, and then suddenly I'll notice it like it was new and novel and amazing with all its rough organic surface, colour, and scent. These inconspicuous little caches are also a marvel of nature, requiring the destructive forces of fire to give up their hidden treasures for the purpose of regrowth and new life. It seems that our lives sometimes mirror the same, our characters being shaped and formed by the hardships, changes, and events that may tear down the old and allow for the growth of something new."

A Sagitarius Wish
by Kelly Dodge
"Sagittarius is best observed during the Northern hemisphere summer months. Constellations are tilted to the right when they are in the Eastern half of the sky and tilted to the left when they are in the Western half of the sky. In both hemispheres, the tilt angles are greatest at the point of rising and setting. Enjoy searching for Sagittarius amidst the starry host!"

Galapaduck
by Kelly Dodge
"During my 2009 Artists for Conservation Flag expedition to the Galapagos Islands I spent 40 days and nights studying and sketching the unique animals and plants of the archipelago. I have kept a secret.......... To this day I believe that I may be the only outsider to have ever seen the rarest of all Galapagos creatures. While skillfully evading tourists they are both friendly and helpful in nature. For the local children they act as a sort of guardian angel whilst frolicking in the ocean. Introducing and unveiling publicly, for the very first time, here at PictureThis....... The extraordinary Galapagos Galapaduck."

Secretive - Winter Wren
by Michael Dumas
"As the title implies, the Winter Wren is secretive in it's habits, tending to be well hidden in thick undergrowth of moist forests. It's a tiny bird, about the size depicted in the painting. I took advantage of this by further freeing it of distracting elements, all the better to appreciate the subtle but lovely markings, and the stubby, tail-raised form that is so characteristic of this family of birds."

Snow Laden Saw-Whet Owl
by Michael Dumas
"A fresh snowfall is always welcome to me. It transforms the very familiar woods around my home into a wonderland of new shapes, and lighting effects that are unique to the event. These small balsam fir trees are barely able to support their burden of snow, which will soon begin to drop off should the temperature rise or a wind to swoop in. It is a transient moment, made even more so by the shifting light, and a small saw-whet owl delicately perched atop one of the saplings. As a result, I had to work in bits and pieces whenever the conditions were just right, and the slight changes from one occasion to the other meant over painting more than is usual for me. Even so, I think it captures the mood of those many moments."
