Welcome to Paul Bachem.com
News! A few exciting things going on this coming season...In May, I will be competing at the Wayne Art Center's Plein Air Event in Wayne, PA. In July I will also be returning for my fifth consecutive year as a competition artist at Plein Air Easton! 2014. This is the tenth anniversary of this great event. I am also very proud to be one of the featured artists in the April/May 2014 issue of Plein Air magazine. There is a link to a PDF version of the story under the articles tab above.
News! July 2013. I am very humbled and honored to announce that my painting "Red, White and Blue" was awarded first place in the recently completed Plein Air Easton! 2013 Quick Draw on Saturday July 20th 2013. What makes this even more special to me is the juror, Don Demers, is one of the foremost marine painters in the world and an artist whose work I greatly admire.
News! May 2013. I am very happy to announce that my painting "Valley Creek" was awarded an honorable mention at the recently completed Wayne Plein Air Event in Wayne, PA. Painted on site in Valley Forge National Park.
Paul Bachem specializes in plein air landscape paintings. After a long career as a freelance illustrator, Paul now devotes his time to painting landscapes and seascapes from nature. His oil paintings and limited edition Giclee prints are in numerous private collections both in the United States and worldwide. "From the first time I painted out doors right up until I packed my gear after todays painting session, I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty. I am never happier than when I am painting from nature. Never!"
