Autumn in Albion Basin

     John Hughes feels simplification makes a more powerful statement than heaping more and more unnecessary detail onto a painting. "I think it is more effective to say a lot with less than to diminish a work with more."
John Hughes paints the Utah landscape both on location and in the studio. His love for working outdoors on field studies is his reference for larger studio pieces. Field excursions are the essence of John's studio work and his inspiration to "stay honest" to the way light affects the landscape.
      John's paintings have been exhibited in many local and national shows. He was featured five times in the top 100 at the "Arts for the Parks" competition in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and twice in the Oil Painters of America National Show.
