Michael Baum

I’ve been exploring the West more than 35 years and barely scratched the surface. I’ve been painting it almost as long and feel like I’m just getting started. Its beauty and immensity goes beyond the visual and digs deep into the soul. Getting to that essence is the challenge of a lifetime. Plus, it's just great fun.

I work out of my studio and home in Manitou Springs, Colorado, and enjoy getting out and painting on site whenever I can. 

I have a very old degree in Fine Art from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, but my real education began when I came West.
