A pair of Hooded Mergansers on a river in spring. Ice shelfs above after the water has gone down. Warm morning light illuminates the scene from the left. Fine detail in the reflections on the water and the wooded area in the background. Deep, warm color palette with many shades used to depict the soft light.

Getting to Know Nathan

Nathan Hager paints the outdoors and captures its beauty while adding his own twist. He describes his paintings as "rooted in traditional representationalism while celebrating the craft of painting." He currently lives in Minnesota and finds inspiration in Representationalism and Impressionism. The Nicolai Fechin show at The Museum of Russian Art also sparked an interest in the work of Russian Impressionists.
