JR Monks chases the clouds and light primarily in the west. He works from field paintings and sketches to bring a personalized, yet authentic image to his viewers. The experiences of painting in the field translate his passion for the natural world. My process is based on experience gained in the field capturing the essence of the scene, while his soul absorbs the sights, sounds, smells and energy of the place at a given time.
JR Monks has lived in Colorado his entire life and ranching has been in is family for many generations. His family brand is his signature and honors the family heritage.
