Original Western Landscape Fine Art Painting "UP TOWARD MARBLE" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West



The road between Redstone, Colorado and Marble, Colorado is a breathtaking drive. You are surrounded by magnificent fourteeners , aspen covered hillsides, and golden meadows where horses, cattle, and elk graze peacefully. How could I not want to paint this?!

Western Landscape Fine Art Painting,“ODD LIGHT“ by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West


Western landscapes are suffused with light; light from different angles, light filtered by particulates, light obscured by quickly moving clouds. When I looked at this landscape I was enamored by the juxtaposition of greenish sky and red rock and soil. Every color seemed to be bouncing off of something else. Oh joy!

Colorado Landscape, Western Landscape, Monk "Sacred" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse



A few years ago, I was in Monument Valley and saw a group of monks experiencing this sacred American place. The image has stayed with me for years. Raven regards Monk; Monk regards you through the lens of a camera, and you all exist in a place which remains unflappably detached from human histrionics. The benign detachment of the landscape of the American Southwest is food for my artist's soul.

Original Colorful Fairgrounds Colorado Landscape "County Fair" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                                            



Grand Junction, Colorado, has a typically wonderful small town county fair. I loved the bright, circus-like colors of the midway in front of the Bookcliffs. The air was hazy and full of the dust of the bull riding event.

Western Landscape Painting, Mountains, Stormy Sky, "VALKYRIE" Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

My husband and I cross from Grand Junction, Colorado to Prescott, Arizona several times a year. It's so beautiful and wide open in the desert! We watched this amazing storm cell march across the wide desert with open mouths. It was full of dark and light clouds, rain, rainbows, whirlwinds, and lightening! What a storm cell bonanza! I've wanted to paint it for a few years, but doubted that I'd be able to do it with acrylic paint. I could glaze and scumble to my heart's content and still not say what I wanted to say. So I resurrected my oils and had at it. The wild and singular force of this beautiful cell reminded me of a Valkyrie; beautiful, powerful, and merciless.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting "OCTOBER AFTERNOON ON THE REDLANDS" by ColoradoArtist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West"


This view of the Colorado National Monument is from old Hwy 340 from Grand Junction to Fruita, Colorado. Three years ago, this painting was juried into an art show in Fort Collins, Colorado. It was a well-respected show; one that requires participating artists to pay a “handler” to ensure that their paintings were delivered from the shipping facility to show, back again, and then shipped back to the artists. When my painting never came home to me, I inquired and found that it had been lost. No tracking number existed and no one was willing to take responsibility. I was mad, sad, and all that other stuff, but let it go and moved on. Two years later, on Christmas Eve day, the painting showed up at my front door, in it’s original shipping box! So, it’s home now, hanging in my studio, wishing for a new home…

Native American Legend Raven Art Painting "Why Raven is Black" by Painter of the American West Nancee Jean Busse





 This painting is the 5th painting in a series inspired by Native American legends.
 These works bring me back to my illustration roots. I love painting the visual imagery of a    colorful narrative.

 Native American legends are colorful and full of life and the natural world.
 I paint these uniformly: all are the 36x24 and all are painted on Yupo mounted to gatorboard.  I love indulging my love of detail and "close work.


 The legend that inspired this painting is retold  HERE

Original Western Landscape Painting "Working The Release Pen" by Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                    

 A few years ago I was given permission to photograph the sheep handlers working the release pen at the Meeker International Sheepdog Trials. It was fascinating! I watched as the border collies and cowboys and horses wrangled the unruly Meeker sheep, gathering them, penning them, and releasing them for each sheepdog participating in the trials. Working the Release Pen won the People’s Choice award at the 2006 Meeker Classic International Art Contest.

Original Colorado Landscape Painting With Eagle "Uncompahgre Gold" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

                         
When my painting studio faced south toward the Gunnison River I was able to watch waterfowl fly the canyon every day. Geese, ducks, herons, eagles, and sandhill cranes flew over that waterway and I enjoyed watching them every day. The eagles were always impressive!

Original Colorado Landscape Painting With Horse, Rider Sheep and Dog , "High Country" by Painter of the American West Nancee Jean Busse

I love painting the Meeker Sheepdog Trials. At the far end of the competition field the sheep wranglers release the sheep at the beginning of each run. That’s what this painting depicts. I love the colors of northern Colorado in autumn; brilliant sun on yellow fields, blue mountains, clear skies… Colorado at it’s most rare and beautiful!
