Artist: Jon Crane Title: Leaning Toward Tommorow Edition: Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Artist Proof to 50. Image size: 40" x 16" About the Artist : Finely detailed rural landscapes are a natural expression of the personality of watercolorist Jon Crane. A man who loves being outside - on a Baja beach or the highest mountain peak, investigating a southwestern plateau or Midwestern cornfield, contemplating ocean waves or kayaking down a lively stream - Jon searches constantly for those special panoramas that he can translate onto paper. Through the medium of transparent watercolor, Jon is able to use its delicate nature to capture the fine details of reality that are so important to him. His oversized nostalgic landscapes of rural America have become his trademark. Jon is a descendant of two noted artists. Alfred R. Waud, Jon's great-great-grandfather, was a well-known Civil War artist and correspondent for Harper's Weekly. Marine artist Milton J. Burns, Jon's great-grandfather, was a popular contemporary of Winslow Homer. Born in New Jersey in 1948, Jon left the crowded East to attend college at the University of Northern Colorado, where he earned a B.A. in Fine Arts in 1971. He spent the next 5 years as an Air Force pilot before launching his art career in Rapid City, South Dakota. He now lives with his wife, Gail, along a secluded trout stream in the Black Hills.
