Nationally award-winning artist Randall Tillery loves to paint all subject matter but finds that his love for nature makes landscape painting a natural transition. For years, he lived in the beautiful surroundings of the California Gold Country, and now makes his home between Kauai and Oregon.
“I feel blessed to be able to capture the beauty that I see every time I turn around. Painting the beauty of nature is really a rather spiritual feeling for me. Being able to capture and interpret the beauty that I see in nature is indeed a gift that I hold precious."
Randall works both in his studio and plein air (out of doors), "I enjoy the change from outdoors work to studio work, but I feel it is critical that I paint from life as much as possible to maintain the freshness in my paintings. Painting plein air allows me to see the subtle value and temperature changes that are hard to detect when not painting from life.”
Randall has been selected for and participated in many regional and national plein air events over the years, including such prestigious shows as the Pacific Northwest Plein Air in Hood River Oregon; Estes Park Show in Colorado; and the Carmel Plein Air Art Festival and San Luis Obispo event, both held in California. Additionally, Tillery has been accepted into many regional and national shows throughout the years. A few of the more recent shows include the 2015, 2014 & 2013 American Impressionist Society’s National Shows held in Scottsdale Arizona, Denver Colorado and Charleston, SC; the 2013 Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibition held in Topeka, KS., and the 2014 Artists Guild National Show held at the Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has had the privilege of working with, and taking classes from many excellent artists who have had a positive influence on his career; including Don Demers, Sherrie McGraw, Kevin McPherson, Skip Whitcomb, Daniel Keys, Libby Tolley, Kathleen Dunphy, and Michael Siegel to mention a few.
His ability to capture the emotionally charged beauty of the scenes he paints has not gone unnoticed. His paintings have won many awards, regionally as well as nationally; in addition, they have been used for used for magazine covers, and featured in the “Best of American Landscape Artists” book as well as being recently featured in Western Art Collector and Southwest Art magazine.
Randall’s works can be found in private collections throughout the United States as well as galleries in California and Oregon.
