KEN JARVELA

Ken Jarvela-Yosemite.jpg

Ken Jarvela is a landscape painter working in the wildlands of Northern California.  A plein air and studio painter, he captures the ever-changing elusiveness of light with vivid brush strokes and a subtle color palette.  Unafraid of challenging grandious subjects such as Yosemite Valley, CA and Crater Lake, OR his paintings range from the well known to the unexplored intimate sea cliffs, valleys and golden hills of the Pacific Northwest. Jarvela's enthusiasm, subject matter and style is reminiscent of early 20th century painters known for capturing the wild west frontier; Edgar Paine, Maynard Dixon and Gottardo Piazzoni.
