Richard Krogstad, an Iowa native who now lives near Minneapolis, paints the Midwestern landscape, concentrating on the region's skies, rivers, lakes, and …strong, honest farm buildings He is particularly drawn to skies, as is evident from the sometimes threatening, sometimes wispy clouds that dominate many of his paintings. Richard sees painting as a way of preserving the pastoral landscape. He writes, …Perhaps what is left can be considered worth saving, if it is seen with new eyes.
