Stephen Day is a full time artist traveling between Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and the region capturing the beauty of the Southwest. Working mainly in oil he paints various subjects from life, but the landscape is his first love.
He says of his working philosophy, "I paint almost exclusively from life trying to capture the feeling and the mood of the subject before me. This philosophy forces me to paint quickly to get a spontaneous and fresh response".
Day frequently paints on location and uses these smaller paintings to create studio paintings.
