Profile: Dan Mondloch
"Plan logically and paint intuitively."
Dan Mondloch grew up in an environment supportive of creativity, and specifically of watercolor. He is continuing in the tradition of his father and other mentors by working in this most difficult medium. Mondloch spent last year pursuing plein air painting in a project he called "Perpetual Search". Partially funded by a career development grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board and the McKnight Foundation, Mondloch traveled the country participating in several plein air events and completing over two hundred paintings. When he is not painting, Mondloch maintains a busy teaching schedule. We began by asking him the same three questions we have asked other watercolor artists (see Why Watercolor - We Ask Ten Top Painters).
