Dennis P. Anderson (1940–2005) is a combination realist, impressionist, and representational oil painter of wildlife. He is interested not in how other people see an animal, but in the impression the animal makes on him. He uses color to achieve his effects. As a child, Anderson had many pets such as rabbits, raccoons, and foxes which were an inspiration and source of art for him. When he grew older, he regularly went through the motions of hunting, but would use a camera instead of a gun. He attended the Art Center School for two years, then worked briefly as a scientific illustrator and for a greeting card company. Anderson usually works on four to five paintings at once. This way, he does not feel bad if he decides to throw one out. He is a member of the National Academy of Western Art and is represented by Wildlife World Art Museum. He has exhibited at the National Academy of Western Art and the Prix de West Invitational. Shown is an oil on panel signed in cursive in the middle right side of the painting, “Anderson.”
