About

Flower song, a beautiful landscape lithograph in soft tones by Michael Schofield (American, b. 1947). Presented in a wooden frame. Signed "Schofield" lower right and numbered "165/350" lower left. Image size, 16"H x 30"W. Michael Schofield, landscape painter and printmaker, was born in Orlando, Florida in 1947 and moved with his family to Oakland, California that same year. Growing up he thought he going to play pro-baseball. In his sophomore year at Oakland High School, under the tutelage of his art teacher Jackie Jenson (brother of internationally recognized watercolorist Robert Jensen), Schofield began to develop his skill in watercolor painting. For the next two years, according to Schofield, "he squeezed endless tubes of paint in his quest to master watercolor and get back to baseball." After high school, Michael went into the military. Shortly thereafter, he left the Marines to attend the Harris School of Advertising Art in Nashville, Tennessee. During the summers term(s), he studied with well-known watercolorist John Pike, a contemporary of Robert Wood in Woodstock, New York. Two years later, he opened his own art studio (in Tennessee) where he says "he taught, painted, and starved", Schofield maintained this studio for 12 years. In 1980, he returned to California and opened his own silkscreen printing studio where he could create his own original serigraphs. Schofield believes that art is fundamentally communication. He chooses to create more traditional landscapes because it is with this imagery that most people relate. It is imagery that evokes a memory and therefore a feeling. In this manner, the artist and those who live with his art share a common experience. "I paint landscapes because they speak to everyone. In sharing a place I have known, I know that others will see places they have known. In that way, I communicate with others without using a single word." Schofield's precision and exactitude somehow meld harmoniously with a more ethereal sense of a place. In this way, his work conveys at once the palpable and the perceptual about a place. He hopes, in fact, to strike a visceral note in those who view his art, re-awakening dormant memories and forgotten feelings. As a successful artist for many years, Schofield's work can be found in many private and corporate collections. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and seen on such popular motion picture films as Bridges of Madison County, City Hall, Beethoven, among others.
