Welcome to the art of Richard Jahn

Welcome to my art page.  Thank you for visiting. The paintings you will see are from our beautiful northwest and other places around the world.   I paint with you in mind, a painters journey of this beautiful world in which we live. Thank you for taking this journey with me as we have a visual explosion of the world around so many of these paintings are familiar Northwest scenes.  I hope you will take this journey with me as we explore the beauty of this area. our great pacific northwest, thru these many paintings on my page. 

Once I began to paint, I found that it allowed me to express myself in ways that nothing else could.  During my career as a professional firefighter and even before, I painted and showed my art throughout the North West.  Now I am a full time painter living the dream and making it up as I go.  

my story

Artist Statement


I want my paintings to be entertaining to look at as well as an expression of who I am as a person.  I see being an artist as more of a state of being than just a skill of making nice looking things.  I want people to feel a sense of connectedness with me as the artist both from the subject matter and from the energy I put into each brush stroke and the thoughts that go into them.  I try to keep my theme relevant to who I am and the places I see - the Pacific Northwest - My art is constantly changing, always evolving, always trying new things, never staying the same.
