Scott’s previous career as a magazine art director greatly informs his art. Scott is nationally recognized in the plein air landscape painting niche and has traveled the country doing events. He’s won a few along the way. In 2008, he received attention for his series of paintings created on the site of Minneapolis’ I-35W bridge reconstruction. In the spring of 2010, he won the top prize in the prestigious Salon International exhibition in San Antonio, Texas.  He has been written up in national art magazines such as American Art Collector, Art Aficionado, Plein Air, and Southwest Art magazines. He has been accepted into the Minnesota State Fair Juried Fine Arts Exhibition twelve times since starting painting, winning four ribbons and two Honorable Mentions. He was also a recipient of a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant in 2012. His art has taken him to Italy, China, Mexico, England, and our new enemy to the north, Canada. Scott lives in south Minneapolis with his wife and business partner Kristi and has two adult daughters.

“I love the honesty of painting outdoors from nature.” Scott says, “It is the painter’s direct response to the day, to the sun, the weather, the air. The speed required to express fleeting light is a good thing. It sharpens the senses. A plein air painting is like a music performance recorded live. It records a moment that will never be exactly repeated. There’s a spark in it that can be lacking in studio productions.” He adds, “Painting outdoors is not easy but with time and practice it’s tremendously rewarding. Humility is part of the process. Getting a hit one out of three times at bat is a measure of excellence in baseball—and it’s a good rate for a plein air painter too. Fortunately, everywhere we look the world reveals new compositions of beauty and subtlety, light and space.” 

Former Minneapolis mayor, R.T. Rybak, says,  

“Scott Lloyd Anderson is an immensely talented painter and a gift to our community. I see so many of his paintings of places I’ve seen over and over, and find something new, some new perspective, something very special in what I had thought was ordinary. I’m not sure how he does it but I hope he keeps doing it. I’m an avid fan.”
