Ken Schneider and I first met about a 100 years ago, in 7th grade. We were in the same art class. We became best friends, sharing numerous interests including basketball, Rod Serling's "Night Gallery" http://nightgallery.net/, and art.
Ken paints magnificent oil and watercolor landscapes. His images are filled with rich, vibrant color and strong value contrasts that jump off the canvas. Ken's work is very original, and personal. He's a accomplished photographer. He shoots reference for his paintings by hiking thru the woods, crossing the streams and climbing the rock formations of Wisconsin.
His work shows at the Edgewood Orchard Galley in Door County. http://www.edgewoodorchard.com/content/
You can see more of his paintings on his Facebook page.
