Stephen Wysocki
Armstrong Creek, Wisconsin

Stephen Wysocki uses acrylics and oils to paint what catches his eye. He currently lives in Wisconsin and finds inspiration in the work of Rothko. His outdoor scenes oftentimes show an impressionistic influence. Fun fact: he recently attended a plein air event in Grand Marais, Minnesota and hopes to attend another major one in the near future.

Thank you, C Sage. I dont always paint cars but when I do I like them colorful. I will have to add a few colorful paintings that are not vehicles. Take Care.

C Sage 4/9/2013 | 4:50 PM

I just love way you choose to use your colors! Not a big truck fan but could learn to love them through your creativity.

I recently received a meritorious nod for my painting "Yellowstone Geyser Flower" aka "Yellow Monkey Flower" in the Richeson "Still life and Floral "competition.

Thank you M Harris for your kind words. I have a new crop of images I am planning to put on soon. I just need some time to take photos of everything.

M Harris 4/29/2012 | 9:32 PM

Looking forward to seeing more of your work. I posted "Remnants" on my Pinterest Board called "Affordable Art for the Home." It is lovely.

Wow, sold my first piece on U gallery. Thanks who ever. Planning big three days of painting with old UWGB gang.

Working on a painting for the show "Birds in Art" in Wausau WI. I started on a swan painting last night. Need to apply by April.

It can be difficult to find time to paint when everything else comes before painting. This last weekend I was very busy trying to be a dad. I was able to bring my painting gear to an ice fishing shak. I got 3 painted in the 5 hours we were on the ice, kept 2 of them. Kids also caught some fish.

I did sell a painting at the award night in Door County WI at the PSA. It has been a slow start to this week. I painted a little after work but needed to stop to put my son to bed. Hope to paint more this evening. I did clean up my studio for the company on Feb 11th for the UWGB painting weekend.

Stephen Wysocki 1/20/2012 | 1:01 PM

Well I like to paint every day, but this week did not work out so well. 2 nights out of 4 so far. On Febuary 11 plans are in the works for a painting weekend at my studio with "the gang" from UWGB. One friend is flying in from Detroit. It should be fun. Going to an art show "closing" in Fish Creek this weekend at the PSA.

Stephen Wysocki 1/12/2012 | 4:34 PM

Well I got 5 entries done and more paintings to come. I am excited to try to sell on U gallery.

Comments About This Piece

This was a working farm near my grandparents. I stopped and took a photo on a cold morning and went back to my studio and tried to capture the morning scene. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
