SFW&C Fiesta Featured Artist 2013
Haskell, 44, lives in Galisteo, just south of Santa Fe, and often paints scenes of the surrounding landscape. Other favorite locations are north of Las Vegas, along the High Road to Taos, and in the small village of Rancho de Las Golondrinas. In his watercolors, real-life images often shape-shift.
Haskell’s biggest influence was another realist painter: Andrew Wyeth
Haskell began drawing at the early age of four, and was introduced to watercolor by the age of eleven. “Drawing,” he once said, “is the basis for my painting and it has been essential for me to continuously develop my drafting skills.”
