2019 Artist: John Kerss

"Iowa Farm," by John Kerss of Des Moines.

"I've always been intrigued by portraying depth and movement in paintings. I love landscapes because of the great depth of field involved, so I paint impressions of landscapes, not necessarily pictorially accurate but as remembered imagery.
