Matthew M. Schulz's love of the outdoors began at an early age venturing afield with his grandfather, John B. Farrington. From October through January they would enjoy the traditions of waterfowling, opening the season on the Kennebec River and closing it with late season Black ducks on the Barnstable salt marshes.

These early experiences became the driving force behind his artistic expression. Color and light have always been a source of great fascination for me. When I'm paintingthere is a specific feeling that I'm trying to expressand these two elements are extremely important to the execution of a strong piece. Painting which began as a narrow interest, revolving around Wildlife Art and Duck Stamps has evolved into an ever broadening passion.

About my grandfather, John B. Farrington 1925-2008

"My Grandfather has always had a huge impact on my life. From the time I was a little kid, when I would long to be old enough to go to Maine with him. And today when I drag him to come with me places and do things that he "doesn't have the ambition for" which translates to 'I'll go, if you drive.'

So it should be of no surprise that I use him as subject matter in my painting's. I use him because he has a certain gritty appeal that all great characters have.

It's the weathered skin, the crisscrossed patterns on his neck and the old beat up hands that have history and that is what he gives to a painting, history.

He was there for all my Outdoor first's. The first duck I shot down on the Barnstable Salt Marshes.

The first time I pulled in a keeper striper off one of the local jetties and became so excited that I fell into the surf, but I kept reeling and landed the fish and myself.

Matt and Grandfather Farrington with 8 pointer 164lbs Dec. 1 2003
He was also with me this past season when I finally shot an eight pointer, my first deer.

This deer has a short story. For those who have ever hunted, one(me) is not always paying close attention as one should to the twists and turns and directional changes that are made in ones travels.

This became abundantly clear when I began to explain where I was to my grandfather when it took him 35 minutes and two signal shots to reach me. But it was all worth it to see his admiration for my deer, which quickly wore away when he realized that I had left my flashlight in the truck too."
