Original, Oil Painting on Canvas, "Nature's Bridge" Hand Signed Oil Painting by the artist Michael Schofield, Size Approx. 48 x 60 Inches Certificate of Authenticity Included, (comes with Image of Artist holding the Painting!) Michael Schofield has been a professional artist for more than 25 years. Although he was born in Orlando, Florida (in 1947), he moved to California that same year and was raised in the Oakland area.
He started painting and studying the watercolor medium while still in high school. Like most teenage boys, Schofield was more interested in sports than fine art, but his art teacher at Oakland High School recognized a very special talent. For nearly two years, his teacher tutored him privately to develop his ability. After high school he went into the military, and then on to art school in Nashville, Tennessee. During the summers, he journeyed to Woodstock, New York to study with well known watercolorist John Pike, a contemporary of Robert Wood.
Schofield soon opened his own art studio where he taught and painted for twelve years before returning to California.
Schofield's work can be found in many private and corporate collections. A sampling of them include: The Library of Congress, Xerox Corporation, Occidental Petroleum, Bank of America and 20th Century, Inc.
