More Information
As a landscape painter, David Gordinier faithfully depicts the serene beauty of Iowa’s rural vistas and the drama of the Southwestern scenery. He creates highly realistic images of the natural world that has been inspiring him since childhood. Gordinier effectively uses natural light to develop dramatic color and define the scenery in an exquisitely beautiful manner. After years spent dreaming of being a full time artist, he made the leap and moved to Mesa, AZ where he spent many years perfecting his realist style of landscape painting. Gordinier continues to paint the light filled natural land that has long been his inspiration in life.
