After 35 years in the television news business Wendall Anschutz is a familiar face to most Kansas Citians. Today he finds relaxation and reward in a field far-removed from the fast pace of the newsroom. On doctor's orders to slow down, Wendall started painting in oil following a stroke in 1989.
Wendall's oil paintings have been praised for their spectacular color, rhythm and use of light. While these qualities are reflected in his portraits, still lifes and cityscapes, his current passion is scenes of his native Kansas, with its plateaus and river valleys, golden fields of wheat, postrock fences and farmsteads and the often-dominating sky.
Like the Kansas landscape, Wendall's paintings are big, often measuring 36"x48". Originals sell quickly but are offered on this site as long as they last. Prints in various sizes are available as well.
You may order them directly on line or find many of them in the following galleries: Art Expo at 121st and State Line in Leawood, Kansas, Right Angels at 151st and Metcalf in Overland Park, and South Wind Gallery at 3074 SW 29th Street in Topeka.
Now Offering Prints on Canvas
For a look that emulates an original, we are now able to reproduce the Anschutz print of your choice on canvas. This process, known in France as Giclée, not only gives the appearance of an actual oil painting, but is totally acid free. And just like an original oil it requires no glass when framed.
