Behind Rod's Art

The Influence Behind Rod's Paintings

My artistic influences have been the Dutch Masters, the French Impressionists and some modern American Abstract Expressionists as well as Outdoor and Landscape Oil and Watercolor Artists of the last 80 years.

Most of these artists at some time in their careers were not afraid to "show the brush strokes" rather than adhere to a strict near-photographic realism.

First and Foremost, any Art should be pleasing to the eye (or the ear).

Of course, that determination is subjective, as we know "Beauty is in the Eye of the beholder."

It is my hope that you will find my paintings pleasing to your eyes, and be proud to hang one on your wall!

Thank You For Your Business!

Rod Wentzel

Rod's collection of prints, including stunning wildlife depictions, captures the spirit and personality of each animal in their natural habitat.

These paintings go beyond wildlife art to depict scenes that evoke nostalgia for a time when nature was more important than technology. A time when families enjoyed spending time together, and children chased fireflies at night.
