Brenda Thour is an accomplished wildlife & landscape artist. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and 2 grown children. She works mostly in oils, but also uses acrylic, watercolor, watercolor pencil, and colored pencil. She has been painting since 1999, when she finally followed her heart and bought a few painting supplies. Picking up a paint brush was like turning a corner in her life. She has studied under and has taken private lessons from award winning artists. "Painting is a passion for me and I immerse myself in each piece I work on. Learning more with each new piece, for art is a never ending learning journey".
To take a blank canvas and create a work of art depicting God's beautiful handiwork is amazingly rewarding. Since she started painting, she has more of an appreciation of the beauty all around us. Her passion is in painting animals of all kinds, followed by landscapes. Brenda now looks at nature differently. She views places and subjects as a possible composition. She notices the beauty of simple things, such as a fence post, or a tree stump.
"I give God all the glory for all he has done in my life."
He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. Phillipians 2:6
