Scott Lloyd Anderson

 
I practice an approach to landscape painting that centers around a color theory with roots in fin de siecle France. I studied with Joseph Paquet in St. Paul, who trained under John Phillip Osborne at the Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey. Osborne’s philosophy came from his training with Arthur Maynard, who learned under Frank Vincent Dumond, a renowned artist/teacher at the Art Students League in New York. Dumond had studied in the classical tradition at the Academie Julian in France, and was influenced by the new Impressionist ideas regarding color and light. Upon returning to America, Dumond taught in Old Lyme, Connecticut, which became a magnet for American landscape painters.

  • Canoeing on West Bearskin Lake by Scott Lloyd Anderson

    *Artist: Scott Lloyd Anderson

    In 2001, after 22 years as a magazine designer, I left my computer to go outside and paint. It didn't take long to realized that nature never fails to reward and challenge an artist: constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere. Cold and wind. Bugs.

    My practice emphasizes painting on location, accurate draftsmanship, and ideas about composition that I learned during my years as an art director. My paintings are impressionistic in that they describe a particular day’s weather, light, and atmosphere, and realistic in that they show the world as it is. In addition, I use the language of landscape to express abstract notions about color, form, design—as well as for the luscious feel of oil paint on canvas.

    When I’m not outside painting, I can usually be found in my studio at my south Minneapolis home. This is where I paint large paintings, prepare boards and canvases, and store junk. It also serves as a gallery where I hold studio sales several times a year.

    Any description of my work as a painter wouldn’t be complete without introducing my wife, Kristi. In addition to running her graphic design business, Two Spruce Design, Kristi helps me with framing, pricing, hanging and promoting shows, and other aspects of marketing my work.
