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 Estes Park Show 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. A few of the more recent prestigious
shows he has been accepted into include the 2014 & 2013 American Impressionist Society’s National Shows held in 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.
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 Don Demers, Sherrie McGraw, Kevin McPherson, 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 as well as being recently featured in Western Art Collector magazine.
His works can be found in private collections throughout the United States as well as galleries in California and Oregon.
