Kevin Muente

This is a detail from Muente’s perfectly composed painting, from INPA 5, Manifest International Painting Annual, Manifest Gallery. Manifest’s current selection process involves a complex two-part system, juried by a 9-12 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury then passes along their scores to the project curator who […]

Experimentations in Landscape

  This spring has been outstanding for painting outside.  I’ve been experimenting with connecting my landscapes for a few years.  Not perfect, as you can see, but would suffice to use as fodder for a larger studio piece, should I take that on.  And they work individually. This is my favorite place to paint right […]
