Joseph Canyon — Original Oil by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art
Joseph Canyon is located in Oregon, near the Hell’s Canyon National Park. Relatively level forest land abruptly and steeply drops off to the vista below, and the silence is broken only by the soft sighing of the wind. The viewer is transported to the southwest without ever leaving the northwest.
What an incredible region the Far West — Idaho, Oregon, Washington — is! If a person is not fortunate enough to live here, then he or she can own a piece of it for their wall.
Joseph Canyon is sold.More artwork by the Norwegian Artist is available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery.
After the Harvest Rain, by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art
The purchaser of After the Harvest Rain
was drawn, literally, to how the scene in the painting looked like the road she drove down everyday to her farmhouse.
“I can almost see my mailbox!” she told the Norwegian Artist.
When we have the opportunity to talk with the clients who purchase the Norwegian Artist’s paintings, we find that such a connection to the subject of the painting is not uncommon. A particular image strikes a resonant chord in the purchaser’s mind or memory or psyche, and a particular painting finds its way onto a viewer’s wall.
Peruvian Fishermen -- Original Oil by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art
When the Norwegian Artist was in his twenties, he bicycled from Alaska to Argentina with a buddy; it took them two years. Along the way, he filled some 20 notebooks with writing and sketches, as well as took thousands of photographs — the latter all in slide form.
Years later, in his barn studio, the Norwegian Artist pulled out the slides and the notebooks and revisited the highlights of the journey. One of those highlights involved a group of Peruvian Fishermen working on their boats and taking a break from the heat of the day.
Peruvian Fishermen is sold.
