Jon Krider, Landscape Artist:
From a young boy, I have always had a passion for nature. I would spend every free second I had walking the fields and woods around our home in Ohio observing and studying every aspect of nature. When most kids would rush home to play with their friends after school, I would grab my sketchbook and head to the woods to draw the trees, ponds, and little critters that I would see.
In my heart, there is always another painting just around the bend. Often people will ask me, which painting is your favorite? With a smile, I always say, “My Next One!”.
