About our 2013 Cover, by Professional Artist Dan Nelson
If you combine three parts painter, two and a half parts musician, a pound or two of inventor, and a heaping tablespoon of show-off... you just might come up with a Dan Nelson, Art Adventurer Extraordinaire. Dan made his living for decades as a freelance illustrator, winning competitions in everything from street painting to sand sculpture. At the same time he began mesmerizing audiences by producing 8-by-10-foot masterpieces in the streets and parks of Raleigh, North Carolina, his hometown.
Besides setting up his plein air easel anywhere from California to France, Dan spends much of his time doing Live Art Performances in cities large and small, painting at festivals, concerts, and fund-raisers. He has painted for the NC Symphony, the Carolina Hurricanes, IBM, Glaxo Smith Kline, and many of the major Corporations across the Triangle and beyond.
