The Artist Says:

"From the first time I painted out doors right up until I packed my gear after todays painting session, I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty. I am never happier than when I am painting from nature. Never!"


Paul Bachem studied with Harold R. Stevenson and Alma Gallanos Stevenson and enjoyed a 30 year illustration career. He worked for clients in New York City, across the country and as far away as Sydney, Australia.
