24" x 30" Oil Painting
Artist Bio
David Mensing grew up in Iowa, surrounded by wide prairies and carefully groomed cornfields. Early in his childhood he began to develop a deep appreciation for open landscapes and wild places. When he moved West as a young man, he was captivated by its raw beauty.

David's ambition is to know and share that beauty through his work. Mensing has found that striving to contain any moment brings wonderful assurance that the experience is too profound to ever really be contained. He is careful to select a title to reflect the purpose and spiritual basis for each painting.

Mensing's architectural background contributes to his compelling designs. David graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, attended Scottsdale Artists School on a full scholarship and has studied extensively with Robert Moore. David currently lives in South Central Idaho with his wife and their three children.

David Mensing's work has been featured in solo and group shows throughout the west, as well as numerous periodicals including American Art Collector, Southwest Art and Western Art Collector. Recent national awards include 'Finalist' in Southwest Art's 21 over 31 Competition and 'Artist's Choice' at The 2010 Western Montana Paintout.
