Artist Statement of Rich Stedman:

My art career started in the photography field in 1974. Ansel Adams had a profound effect on the direction my photography. Ansels\' fine art, large format black and white prints was the style I tried to emulate. After many years, I started to become interested in hand coloring black and white prints. The process of hand coloring is similar to painting with oil, however the shadows and highlights were not as variable as I would have liked. Always in the back of my mind, I thought I would like to paint some day. In August 1994, I participated in an Oil Workshop at the Oscar Howe Art Center. At the end of the daylong workshop, I had an oil painting that was surprisingly presentable. Since then I have read many \"how to books\", studied numerous videos and tried many techniques. In 1996, I decided to try watercolor and have fallen in love with that medium. I hope you enjoy your stay and I would love to hear from you.
