Artist Profile

David Schwindt

Fish Creek Falls

Oil Painting
Originals
David Schwindt primarily paints the landscape of the Southwest. This is territory he knows intimately having moved to western Colorado when he was four years old. Memories of the big skies and open spaces on the plains of eastern Colorado and Kansas during his early childhood influenced his desire to paint the dramatic skies of the West as well as its mountains and canyons. He studied color theory and basic design at two western universities before completing a degree in art in 1971 with minors in music and humanities at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO.

While working as a guidance counselor at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM, David was inspired by his students and the Santa Fe arts scene to make art his full-time career. Inclusion in the prestigious "Introductions '74" show at the Albuquerque Museum marked his transition as a professional. For several years he focused on watercolor painting and served as president of the New Mexico Watercolor Society. Winning awards at watercolor shows encouraged him to seek venues for his oils, and he found encouragement there also, including three first place awards in oil painting at the New Mexico State Fair. He has been invited to jury and judge local and national shows and enjoys teaching workshops to pass on the education so generously given him by other artists including Milford Zornes, Millard Sheets, George Post, Al Brouillette, and Wilson Hurley.
In 2000, after more than 25 years in New Mexico, David and his family moved to Arizona where he has added the Sonoran desert to his repertoire. He continues to travel the West and explore new subject matter wherever he finds it.
