Collection: Bob Coonts

A Colorado native and long-time Fort Collins resident, Bob’s painting style reflects his Western Heritage yet is uniquely his own. He strives for an image that is unusual and that brings pleasure in the doing as well as in the viewing. His work is often stylized, often whimsical, always colorful and strong in design and composition. Animals, landscapes, people, history and mythology provide a wealth of subject matter. He also produces images that are purely abstract or non-objective in nature.

Colors, as used by the Fauvists, the challenge of composition and the excitement of discovery impact my work and style. Animals, plants, landscapes and people provide a wealth of subject matter. Combining a sense of warmth, graceful movements and detail give release to a style bordering on abstract by reflecting a true image.

I am developing a style that is unique to me. I want something that is different. It is stylized, often whimsical, always colorful and hopefully strong in design and composition. I also work on figurative images and images that are strictly abstract or non objective.
