Some artist’s work is so beautifully rendered that it is hard to understand how it could be made by hand. The acrylic paintings of Idaho-based artist Brian Sostrom are a perfect example. Sostrom is tight-lipped about his process, which I believe adds to the magic of his work. He is currently living his dream of painting full-time surrounded by nature’s beauty, which he brings to us through his work.
When presenting Sostrum’s work to children, try seeing what materials they think he has used. Do these look like photographs or will they “read” them as paintings? Children have an amazing abilities of perception, you might be surprised by their answers!
