Kurt Hartel's Profile
Hello, my name is Kurt, thanks for stopping by! As you've already seen, my approach to art is a bit surreal, I also enjoy using an "unusual" choice of colors for my illustrations, which can border on the bizzare at times. I received my BA degree in Art at Long Beach State University way back in 1976. However I still consider myself "self taught" (is there any other way?) I paint mainly to amuse myself and to escape from the non-stop crazyness of this world. All the madness and despair melts away while I'm working on "a piece". I also am an avid "rock climber" (love those adrenaline rushes) I climb in beautiful Idyllwild, in the San Jacintos, that too helps keep my head on straight (sort of) I hope you have found my work interesting, and that you too have been amused! As you browse through my shop, please utilize the "zoom" option, to fully appreciate the attention to detail. I'm never too busy to "convo" if you have any...
