Steve Langenecker's Gallery

Steve Langenecker began painting at the age of 9 and has never stopped.

Growing up in rural Wisconsin near the Horicon Marsh, he naturally began to paint the fields, woods, and marshes with special focus on the birds and animals that inhabited them. He sold his first painting at the age of 12 and became exposed to the popularity of "wildlife art" and the belief that he could make a living selling his art painting what he loved. After receiving a BFA in Fine Art, Steve did an internship at the Milwaukee Public Museum where he had access to huge rooms filled with birds and animals that he could study and paint. His view of "wildlife art" changed profoundly after viewing the international exhibit "BIRDS IN ART" at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau. He continues to paint daily in his studio in Waukesha. He considers himself a "nature" artist who paints landscapes and the birds and animals that first sparked his imagination as a boy.

"The elements of the landscape that I still love and need to have in my paintings are what I call nature's "special effects": misty mornings, sparkling lakes, translucent leaves, storm clouds, fiery sunsets to name a few. I'm attracted to a certain quality of light and color, pattern and movement. I'm also excited by landscapes that show a human presence including orchards, stone fences, farms, trails and rustic roads. Birds and animals will sometimes find their way into these paintings and favorites are still those of my youth: fox, pheasant, deer, heron, cranes, and songbirds."
