Art by Northwest Painter Dave Nichols
Northwest Oil and Watercolor Artist
"The impact art has had on my life is indescribable.  The potential for artistic growth is infinite, and the challenges of making something come alive on canvas are absorbing and ultimately inexpressibly pleasurable.”
Now no longer having to “clock in” Dave spends his time in his lake-view studio painting and perfecting his craft.  “In the work world we are defined by our job.  It is easy to feel we are identified pretty much by what we do for a living.  Painting requires an entirely different mindset.  Encouraging one’s creative side to come forth without answering to outside expectations gives one a very different view of self.”
