A Kansas-born artist, Larry Fanning now resides in Colorado, near the Western wilderness that he loves. He says about it; "In its richly endowed land, its wildlife, and in the dreams of it's people, there pulses an energy that is sacred and life-giving."
Self-taught, Fanning has an understanding of the animals he paints; a feeling for their anatomy that shows in the natural positioning of his subjects. Color is also instinctive to him, making his subjects come to life in his art, prints and posters.
Great care is also taken to ensure the accuracy of the background in all his art, prints and posters. While Fanning draws from different experiences for his compositions, you will find that every detail is just right, you'll feel the snow stinging your face or the breeze blowing through.
