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. “I lived for years in the beautiful surroundings of the California Gold Country but have just recently moved to Sister, Oregon. I feel blessed to now live here and 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."
Tillery 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 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 Plein Air in Colorado, the Carmel Plein Air Art Festival, and the San Luis Obispo event both held in California.
Additionally Tillery has been accepted into many regional and national shows through the years. Just a few of the more recent prestigious shows he has been accepted into include the 2013, 2014 & 2015 American Impressionist Society’s National Shows, the 2013 Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibition , the 2014 Artists Guild National Show, and the 2013 & 2014 Scottsdale Best and Brightest National Show. Randall earned his signature status in American Impressionist Society (AIS) in January of 2016.
Randall has had the privilege of working with, and taking classes from, many excellent artists who have had a positive influence on his career; including Mitch Baird, Ovanes Berberian, Scott Christensen, Kevin McPherson, Don Demers, Sherrie McGraw, Skip Whitcomb, Daniel Keys, Libby Tolley, Kathleen Dunphy, and Michael Siegel to mention a few.
Tillery’s 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. He has also been recently featured in a few times in Southwest Art and Western Art Collector magazine and most recently featured in the September 2015 issue of Southwest Art magazine’s article “Lasting Impressions” and the October 2018 article “Ones to Collect.”
His works can be found in private collections throughout the United States as well as galleries in New Mexico, Hawaii, Oregon and California.
