James Biggers describes his style of work as “painterly realism,” an impressionistic rather than hyper-realistic take on the landscape genre—a vision he employs whether he’s depicting Wyoming’s Wind River or boats docked in an Italian harbor. What often catches his creative eye and inspires him to paint a scene is the overall design. “The abstract shapes have to be just right,” he says. But even more importantly, Biggers believes that as an artist he must put something of himself into his work. “Design and the subject may attract people to your painting, but heart is what keeps them there,” he says. His work is published in the “Art of the National Parks” and “Landscapes of Colorado” books, as well as Southwest Art and other magazines.
