I have admired Scott Yeager’s wildlife and landscape paintings for several years now and I am pleased to offer this fine example of his work that captures the beauty of the South Carolina coast. A copse of palmetto trees (South Carolina’s state tree the “Sabal Palm”) in the foreground dramatically catch the light of the late afternoon sun, their lower trunks in shadow. Through a break in the foliage at the lower right is a glimpse of an inlet and far shore beyond, lending depth to the scene. This painting evokes for me some of the Florida paintings of Hermann Herzog and that great landscapist’s use of light and shadow. It is very nicely executed employing alla prima technique. With short, multidirectional strokes of his bristle brushes, Yeager very effectively renders the underbrush, the texture of the tree trunks, the palmetto fronds above which the viewer can imagine swaying in the breeze, and the cerulean sky beyond.

An avid fisherman and all-around outdoorsman, Scott Yeager offers a visual diary of his love for the outdoors through his paintings. Firsthand experience of the subject is at the core of his work. Some of these stand on their own, and many are the springboard for more developed and larger works in the studio. In his youth, Yeager filled sketchbooks with drawings and paintings of all things of the natural world that inspired him. As an adult, Scott studied at the prestigious Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona, and has sought individual study with artists Kang Cho, Scott Christensen, and Quang Ho. All through his life he has been inspired and guided by the works of William Trost Richards, Ogden Pleissner and the Hudson River School.

Scott has exhibited in the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s well-known “Birds in Art” exhibition, hes been judged into the “Arts for the Parks” exhibition sponsored by the National Parks Academy of the Arts, and he has been selected to exhibit in several shows at the Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont, including: “Impressions of New England, Small Works” and “Art of the Animal Kingdom”. His work also forms part of the permanent collection of the Academy Art Museum. He is an active member of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association.

Scott’s travels take him to many parts of the country from Maine to Alaska. Most of his favorite destinations are in the Rocky Mountains and the southwest.

In the words of art dealer and writer Jim Balestrieri: “In the grand tradition of the sportman-artist, Scott Yeager lives the life he paints. His works are authentic, contemporary takes on camp life and the wilderness experience devoid of sentimentality and nostalgia.”

Condition: The painting is in excellent, ready-to-hang condition. The painting is clean with bright colors and with a semi-matte surface. The contemporary gilt plein-air style frame is likewise in excellent condition.
