Howard Behrens (1933-2014) was born in Chicago, IL. He inherited creative talents from both of his parents. After receiving his master’s degree, he worked for 17 years as a graphic designer, at the same time working on his paintings by gaining inspiration from traveling. In the late 1970’s, Behrens began experimenting with paint and style and found inspiration in work he created with a palette knife, a tool most artists use to mix oil paints before applying them to canvas. Using thick paint (impasto) he creates depth of field and an intense contrast between light and shadow and has virtually eliminated black and white from his palette. An avid world traveler, his on-location paintings of Italy, France, Mexico, Hawaii, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and United State's coastlines show his marvelous understanding of the colors of his surroundings.
