Featuring Michael Ome Untiedt

Born and raised in rural Colorado, Michael Ome Untiedt maintains a studio in Denver. Untiedt describes how he paints, "I see Western colors by long light; coyotes, God's dogs, have howled these colors into my soul. I try to convey in my paintings timelessness, a sense of 'at the moment' that is almost eternal." Untiedt's work, with its expressive colors, expressionistic brushworks, and metaphoric imagery, tell a wonderful story.

Michael Ome Untiedt has participated in numerous shows including the Colorado Governor's Invitational, Briscoe Museum Night of the Artists, Buffalo Bill Art Show and Auction, and Masters of Montana. He received the 2005 “Tuffy Berg” Award for "The Best New Artist of the Year" at the C. M. Russell Show in Great Falls, Montana.
