Biography


 
DANIEL BETHUNE FINE ARTIST

Daniel Bethune has been painting most of his adult life. Although primarily self-taught, he has sought refinement and expansion of his natural abilities through private and group art study under the direction of renowned artists.
 
In 1990, his first works were introduced to the public in a small co-op gallery on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. His art impressed collectors and the public, and Daniel began receiving invitations to install his work in galleries and showings across the state.
 
In 2000, Daniel began teaching outdoor - en Plein Air - painting to adults amid the famous ocean, beach, forest and mountain landscapes. He continues to participate in solo and group shows, embracing this branch of impressionism that represents outdoor light and air.
 
In 2005, Daniel moved from Hawaii to New Mexico. In the serenity of the High Desert, Bethune built his studio and began focusing solely on his art. Inspired by the constant but ever-changing beauty of this region, he further developed his unique artistic vision.
 
The resulting work captured the New Mexico landscape seen through Bethune's distinct eye. He soon discovered that his paintings could dictate their own outcome.
 
Daniel explains, "I begin with a basic theme, but instead of trying to overthink the process and merely replicate a landscape as I would in the past, I now consciously remove myself from the mechanics and let the brush strokes dictate."
Today, his paintings are collected internationally.
 
Daniel's work can be seen at his private studio in Lamy, New Mexico.
