I'm an artist who spent most of his life not doing art. As a young man I sketched 8 hours a day, every day that I wasn't in school. But once I entered the job market all my abortive attempts to return to art failed. I studied photography and writing and other peripheral forms and once in a while I'd make an attempt to return but all for naught.
As I approached retirement, I began creating 3D objects and that went on for a couple of years, and then I switched to digital painting and it was where I'd always wanted to be. I take a lot of time on my paintings and because of the detail they look best when enlarged to around 36" x 24".
I like naturalist or realist styles that tell a story. You can follow the story I tell or make up your own based on what you see.
I really enjoy my own work, and I finally decided to share it with the rest of the world. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
My name is Steve Kukula, and I live in southeast Idaho.
