Daily Palette Double Feature

untitled street scene, oil on canvas, 32" x 40", 2012-2013

Larry Welo studied art at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and he currently lives and works in Wisconsin.

While Mr. Welo is best known for his etchings, which he has been creating for over forty years, he paints as well.  He writes this about his recent work in oils: "I work on my paintings while the subject is before me.  The immediacy of the translation from life to art is important to me.  There is a connection that occurs between mind, hand, and subject."

Mr. Welo's prints and paintings will be featured in a show at Iowa Artisans Gallery in Iowa City throughout the month of October.

Be sure to visit the Daily Palette again tomorrow when we feature another oil painting by Mr. Welo!  For more on his etchings, please visit the artist's website, or visit our archives.
