Joshua Been - Artist
Colorado artist Joshua Been writes about his painting experiences on his website. This page has a description about how he goes painting and skiing at the same time. Lots of colorful subject matter is available to the plein air-ist who goes to a ski area. You could paint out the window of the lodge, or if you're adventurous (like Joshua), put your gear on your back as you take the lift up to some spectacular scenery. He says that the "lift line" paintings always sell quickly, becoming a happy souvenir for someone's home or office.
Joshua has worked in Los Angeles as a character animator and at the Buena Vista Correctional Facility in Colorado where he taught Art and Design to medium/high-security inmates. He offers workshops, a 2010 Calendar and custom frames.
