Larsen created Ozark Ridgeline after a hunting trip with friends in 2006. "I'm really not a hunter, but it's something I do to be with my friends," he explained. "I recall sitting on my deer stand, closing my eyes, and in an instant, I was somewhere else. I was listening to what I could hear around me, and when I opened my eyes, what I saw was just breathtaking. It was like juxtaposing yourself against another environment."
Larsen said he feels he's "far enough along in my career that I'm not interested in showing my work in as many competitive exhibits." Over the years his work has been selected several times for the annual Delta Exhibit at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. He has received individual artist fellowship awards from the Arkansas Arts Council and his work has also been included in the Arkansas Artists Registry's Small Works on Paper Exhibition. In 2005, Larsen was featured in a one man show at the Museum of the Gulf Coast in his hometown of Port Arthur, and had work included in the 2005 New Orleans Triennial at the New Orleans Museum of Art.

"I'm really honored by this," Larsen said during a recent visit at the gallery. "I'm glad to finely be able to pay back the university for all it has done forme. There's not a whole lot you can do as a starving artist. I see this as a great way to give back to the university."
"I basically do two types of painting," Larsen explained. "What I call my asphalt art is more in tune with mainstream art of the 20th century. It's more in the spirit of Jackson Pollock. I use tires to roll over my canvas."
When he's not teaching or creating art, Larsen enjoys traveling with his wife of 40 years, Patricia, who is a retired teacher from the Perryville School District.
