Michael Orwick creates compelling views of our world that move beyond time and place –full environments for your mind to explore, your senses to imagine. Places as mysterious as Oregon’s craggy coast, as unpredictable as a glacial view of Mount Hood, or as serene as an Oregon waterfall. His skill as a landscape artist can remind us of Remington in his most enamored moments with the majestic American West, or of the Impressionists as he paints a dance of light on a pond or snow.
-Mari Rockett, DragonFire Studios and Gallery Curator, 2008
