Purple Barn with Shadow

Gordon Kellenberger lives in High Amana, Iowa. He received a degree in Art Education from the University of Northern Iowa and has done graduate work at the University of Iowa and Marycrest College. He is a native of the Amana Colonies and is one of the founders of the Amana Arts Guild. With the belief that art is a combination of nature and the human spirit, he lets nature provide the subject and the inspiration, and allows the spirit to provide the emotion and passion. His media are pastels and watercolor and his paintings are "simple and common to all of us: landscapes, skies, architecture and, from time to time, people." He likes to do his work in a series and tries to transform a view into a mood.
