LPAPA Signature Artist Member Jeff Horn
of Costa Mesa, California
LPAPA’s August 2017 featured Signature Artist Member of the Month.
Jeff is a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and California Art Club. He exhibits his outdoor landscape paintings at The Laguna Festival of the Arts each summer and at his home studio annually in Costa Mesa, California. He has received several honors for landscape painting. He enjoys painting from nature while out of doors and he actively supports several land conservancy efforts in California with his paintings, including The Catalina Island Conservancy and The Sierra Foothills Conservancy.
“I prefer to paint directly from nature and I love being outdoors where I can see, hear, feel, smell and even taste the scene around me. For me, the painting is a translation of nature and my experience of it. If I am successful, I take the viewer with me to feel the moment. I believe good painting is not a slavish copy of visual details, but an emotional response to a moment in nature.” — Jeff Horn
