LPAPA Signature Artist Clark Mitchell
Growing up in the shadow of the Rockies, Clark Mitchell very early discovered a love of the natural world. Given a set of fine old German pastels by his father when quite young, he quickly embraced the medium for its ease of handling, brilliance of color and portability. Mitchell has developed the talent to create both tightly rendered scenes as well as looser, more abstract suggestions. Clark received the 2005 “Best in Show” award at the 7th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational.
