Artists’ Corner by Stefan Baumann: Declaring what is important to you

When creating art (whether music, writing or painting), you are declaring what is important to you. 

You show the world what it takes for granted as you expose the viewer to a remarkable new way of seeing through your eyes.  For example, Van Gough’s painting of sunflowers; some people love sunflowers and some people don’t.  Some people don’t have any opinion either way. 

However, you’d have to agree, once you have seen Van Gough’s “Sunflowers,” you will never look at a sunflower the same way again.  You possess this power as an artist as you share your view of the world with others.

With the success of Baumann’s weekly PBS television series, “The Grand View America’s National Parks through the Eyes of an Artist,” millions of people witness for themselves the magic Baumann portrays on canvas, his passion for nature and the American landscape. 

Through his mastery of light, color and artful composition, Baumann invites you to experience nature in its purity.

It is no wonder that for many years distinguished American collectors, including former American presidents and financial icons, have sought out his work.
