Living in Bozeman, Montana, Chris Turbuck produces beautiful, strikingly realistic oil paintings on canvas. His subject matter includes the animals and scenery of the Rocky Mountains. His major influences are the Baroque, Mannerist, Romantic and Neoclassical masters. He applies the color thickly, working rapidly in impasto technique.
