    December 2018: Greg Scheibel

    Greg Scheibel

    Professional artist 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 American West, 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, the result of these field studies, is the foundation for all of 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.

    Greg began showing his work in 2005 and became a full time, professional artist in 2007. His work can be found in several of the West's finest galleries (such as Astoria Fine Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming), and he has been invited or juried into a number of prestigious shows.

    Greg has received numerous awards for his work, including Awards of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America on three occasions, and is a Signature Member of that organization. Greg is also a member of the NWR (Northwest Rendezvous Group of Artists), the Montana Painters Alliance, and an Out of State Artist Member of the California Art Club. He has been listed as an 'Artist to Watch' in Southwest Art Magazine, and featured in Western Art Collector, Distinctly Montana, Art of the West, Southwest Art, and Plein Air Magazines.
