394743_172179866215253_1650952982_nJoseph Koensgen is a Canadian wildlife and nature artist. His keen interest in nature, combined with artistic talent means that he is able to bring his experiences to life through the brush, creating vibrant and realistic pieces of art. His art has been recognized by receiving two People’s Choice awards at Art Expo, and in 2013, was featured in an article, “30 Under 30, Young Artists Revolutionizing the World of Fine Art”, in Art Business News Magazine. He is a member of the Assiniboia Group of Artists Cooperative, and Artists for Conservation. His concern for the natural world is a strong motivator for creating such work, with the hope that it will bring to attention the need to protect the wild places he paints. He has been selected three times to be a part of the Ducks Unlimited Canada National Art Portfolio, a program to use artwork from talented artists to raise funds and awareness for wetland conservation across Canada. He is currently living in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he continues to work on creating new and unique pieces of wildlife art that are inspired by experiences, and a desire to protect the natural world.

Loon

Loon – 14 x 24″
Hearing the echoing of Loons on the lake on a calm summer evening is one my favourite sounds of the season. As much as I can, I like to be out on the water on a calm evening at the lake absorbing the stillness of the forest and the sights and sounds of nature. This scene is from Riding Mountain National Park, where there is an abundance of landscapes and amazing wildlife. And though it may take quite a bit of patience to see some of these things, it is always worth the wait.
