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.

Hawaii, Mountain Landscape,Kauai,Waterfall, Digital Art "WAIMEA CANYON " by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

This digital painting required 18,883 strokes and 14 hours. Waimea Canyon is on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The color of the canyon walls reminds me of the canyon colors of western Colorado, which is my home. The contrast is the climate: the lush foliage and humidity on the island of Kauai is lovely! And this viewpoint of Waimea Canyon is an iconic one.

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.

Abstract Art, Digital Painting, “red, white, and blue” by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse


This digital painting required 4495 strokes and 17 hours. Recent history and politics knocked a lot of us for a loop. Our usually-neighborly populace ruptured into a quarrelsome mess. When my siblings and I behaved like that as children, my mother would have threatened to "pull the car over and knock our heads together." I can't do that (she never did either), so instead I painted a piece that represents Old Glory, shattered like glass; exploding from the unbearable pressure of hatred and hostility. 

 36"x24" This painting will reproduce beautifully on archival paper, as a canvas wrap, or on metal.

Digital Art, Digital Painting, Botanical, "Cactus" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

I saw, and photographed, this amazing, weathered cactus at the Na Aina Kai Botanical Garden on the island of Kauai. When I choose a botanical for a painting, I typically choose something that is compelling because of its complexity, beauty, and/or sexiness. My digital paintings take time and patience, allowing me to abide for a time with each plant I paint. This painting took over 70 hours to complete and over 43,000 strokes.    Because this was painted digitally, it can be reproduced at any proportionate size up to 23.5” x 30”. It will look beautiful printed on paper, canvas, or metal. Contact me and we can discuss which option will work the best for you. 

Digital on Collector's Choice: Paper, Metal, or Canvas 30.5 x 23 x 0

Still Life Flower Painting "Glad" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West

I belong to a local CSA, an organic cooperative farm in my community. Not only do we receive a share of delicious produce each week, we get flowers, too! These gorgeous, elegant gladiolas graced my home for just under a week. I had to paint them! I painted this still life in warm, summertime sunset colors.
