Circus Scene I

DAN MCNAMARA
Circus Scene I, oil pastel on paper, 30 x 23

Dan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His work has been seen in exhibitions in Des Moines and Minneapolis and can be found in several private collections. New American Paintings featured his work in the 2000 Midwest Edition.

A Des Moines native, Dan creates lush monoprint landscapes. Using a subdued palette consisting mostly of various shades of green, he depicts river and pond banks lined with rocks, tranquil bodies of water, and towering trees. Each work radiates a certain sense of serenity and harmony within nature.

Dan says of his work, "I am a firm believer in the study and reflection on the work of the masters so as to build upon a firm foundation. In my own work I strive for balance and harmony coupled with past and present ideas regardless of the subject matter."
