Stidham is uniquely qualified to paint the outdoor world. He is best known
for his dramatic oils of fish in their natural environment. It is true
that an artist expresses best that for which he has a passion and
familiarity. It follows then that many of Mikeís works are connected to
the outdoors and the world of fishing. The real essence of Mikeís work is
his use of light and Mike paints extensively outdoors on location to
accurately capture the true nature of his subjects. His works are painted
loosely, creating images that succeed on their total artistic merit,
rather than just routinely painting every scale, leaf & feather.
