About

Artist Comments
A spring landscape in Texas Hill Country blooming with bluebonnets and surrounded by old growth oak trees. "This painting is about the transitions of color between the shadows and the lights," says artist David Forks. He utilized a painterly impressionist technique to capture the deep shadows in the foreground and the more nuanced changes in light in the distance.


About the Artist
David has always wanted to be a painter. His professional career consisted of design and illustration roles, but it was not until a brush with his own mortality that David decided to change careers and become a full-time artist. “I quit my job in Houston and moved to the small and slow-paced border town of Del Rio, Texas, where I am now living my dream,” he says. Inspired by the outdoors, he often paints outside or takes photographs on his road trips to which he refers once back in his studio. The resulting paintings are marked by impressionist-style brushwork and a natural use of color. David’s pastoral scenes of the countryside are idyllic, invoking within the viewer a serene sense of calm.
