Artist Statement: 

I shot the photo reference for this painting in February of 2019. I didn’t realize the significance it would have for me over a year later when I painted it. Like many of us I’m sure, I’ve been feeling run aground. Fortunately, the day before non-essential businesses closed, I was able to restock my paint supply and I had fresh canvases on hand. Through this pandemic, though inspiration and motivation has been in short supply. Completing this painting, Run Aground, was one of my achievements. It helped me to realize that even though it will take patience, some maintenance, checking and rechecking, we will get back on the water again. In the meantime, we can enjoy the sunsets and be hopeful for a brighter tomorrow. 

Bio:

Steve Schreiber was raised near the rural New Jersey town of Farmingdale, located in Monmouth County. In his early 20's, Steve moved to Northeast Ohio, and soon after attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating with a focus on illustration and design. His interests have led him to follow a variety of career paths including children's educational publishing, arborist & tree climber, and management of a zipline canopy tour. He is now returning to his passion for painting, saying "I am excited about my prospects for a future in fine art. It feels like the right time. If I can express myself creatively, and have some positive influence in the world, I'll be very satisfied." Steve lives in Parma Heights, Ohio where he paints, enjoys the outdoors and time with family.
