Exuberant colored landscapes are the trademark of the nature-based painter, Rodger Bechtold. His painterly interpretations of place and moment offer an open, uplifting quality to his Midwestern countrysides and his liberated sense of color vitalizes each canvas. An accomplished landscape painter for over 30 years, Rodger Bechtold studied art at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In addition, he studied with well-known painter, Wolf Kahn in Santa Fe, New Mexico at Mr. Kahn's invitation.

"I create landscape paintings that have a feeling of spaciousness beyond the limits of the canvas dimensions, charged with color, expressed with energy and seemingly effortless brushwork. But most of all I'm interested in communicating what it feels like to be there." -Rodger Bechtold
