Aaron Schuerr Pastel Adventures

Aaron Schuerr "River Glow"

Have you ever tried to paint outdoors with the frozen fingers? Or climbing to a peek of mountain to find that perfect spot for your next plein air painting? Looks like that is the specialty of Aaron Schuerr. He combines his love of outdoors and painting to capture those special moments when most of us run for shelter.
Aaron is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, is a dedicated plein-air painter based in Livingston, Montana. Working in both oil and pastel, he brings a quiet intimacy and sensitive rendering of light to the varied landscapes of the Rocky Mountain West.
Aaron won the Pastel Journal Gold Medal Award for Excelence in 2011 with the painting River Glow.
