Introducing Mark Altrogge Paintings

"Red Barn" by Mark Altrogge

Some of you may know I was an art major in college and got my Masters in Painting.

For the last few years I have gotten together with my 92 year-old dad once a week to paint.  At the encouragement of friends I’ve opened an online store, Mark Altrogge Paintings, to display my paintings and hopefully sell duplications of the originals.  I’m opening with 9 paintings, and hope to add more in the future.

The painting above is featured in the store as well as a painting I did a few years ago for Covenant Life Church’s teaching series, “The Dearest Place on Earth.”

Thanks for taking a look at the paintings.  And if you like them, could you do me a huge favor?  Could you let your friends know about it via Facebook, Twitter, etc.?  I’d really appreciate it.

Thanks again,

    Looks like a cheerful Van Gogh!

    • Mark Altrogge

      Thanks Lindele, I love Van Gogh – I love his brushwork and the swirls and patterns he creates with it.

  • Elaine

    Love it! And I have birthday money to spend. :-)

    • Mark Altrogge

      Thanks so much Elaine!

      • Vince

        The US economy must be doing a whole lot better than the UK economy – I would need 10 years of birthday money to afford some of those (as lovely as they are) works of art! :-)

    Wow. He writes music, he does announcements, he paints!! Ladies and Gentlemen, Mark Altrogge!!

    Seriously though, I didn't realize that you had painted The Dearest Place on Earth image. I love that picture.

    • Mark Altrogge

      Thanks so much Nicole! I was honored that they asked me to try to come up with something for their teaching series and then actually used it.

    My pleasure to facebook you. I wonder if that guy is still waiting for you to show up and paint his barn?

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thanks Jack! If he is, he's got a long wait…

  • Natalie

    I especially love Autumn Mosaic and Reflections No. 1, but they're all beautiful. I'll start saving my pennies or try to convince someone to buy one for me!

    • Mark Altrogge

      Thanks so much Natalie!

  • Susan Kaculis

    I love it – that was my neighbor's barn when I was growing up in Pennsylvania!
