Aaron Schuerr has many descriptions to his name: artist, writer, actor, husband, and father. And while all have a certain distinction to them, one of those connects him to other people on a much deeper level. Art is what Schuerr uses to translate the experiences of nature to other people. "Though painting is largely a solitary endeavor, it is never a lonely one because I am invited to share in the ineffable mystery of beauty," he explains.

Schuerr's artwork encapsulates the beauty of nature, portraying various landscapes in vivid colors and combinations. The artist juxtaposes his pieces to the subject which in his work becomes a frame, a perfect background that seamlessly blends with art to create one breathtaking image. "My art is borne out of my struggle to absorb, comprehend, and understand the natural world. I’m overwhelmed, and yet I can’t tear myself away," he details, "and so I paint, so as to stand there for just a little longer." The artist says that he started painting early, while pursuing an art degree in Scotland, working in both oils and pastels. He moved to Montana after he graduated, citing the surrounding area as the source of inspiration. "We reside in Livingston, Montana, a small town at the foot of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and within striking distance of Yellowstone National Park. Basically, I've got a lifetime worth of inspiration a short drive from my home," Aaron told Bored Panda.

The colorful landscapes take the viewer on a journey and allow them to experience nature through the eyes of the artist. "No two people experience a sunset in the same way and yet we can experience it together," Aaron adds. So take a look at the pieces yourself and don't forget to comment and vote on your favorites!

The artist says that his goal is not to impress people with his art, but to share his experiences "with honesty and without fear". And while it might not be his primary goal, Aaron's pieces are truly impressive. That's why he has quite a large list of gallery shows and awards, 2018 Award of Merit from Oil Painters of America and 2013 Award of Excellence from American Impressionist Society among some of them.

Ooh, eye candy! Nice layout. Painting almost looks like a photo. The pastels (?) add just the right amount of color. Looks just like New Mexico territory. I like this!

Really nice photo! The painting captured the color of the water at the shoreline really nicely. Is that a house up top right? Is it for rent? lol!
