About John W. Heister ~ Artist
My art is traditional, primarily in watercolor and oil. The natural beauty of the world is my starting point. Whether landscapes, flowers, birds or the human body, my art works off of the intrinsic attractiveness of natural phenomena.
The artist has the marvelous opportunity to compose the painting in such a way as to enhance and enrich and focus upon a particular facet of God’s incredible creation. It is in the flaw as well as the perfection that the character of the art is realized, whether the human face or an aging building. To be effective, I feel the art must invite the viewer into an experience which pleases, stimulates, and touches the soul.
