Roger Dale Brown, OPA

“When a subject intrigues me, I not only attempt to paint it visually but also spiritually. This is what separates an artist from a painter. The artist strives for the viewer to understand how the subject made him feel. Knowledge gives us the tools to paint and our spirit makes us an artist. When the viewer senses my emotions in a painting, then I have succeeded.”

ROGER DALE BROWN, OPA

Originally from Nashville, Roger now resides in Franklin Tennessee. Avid about traveling he is compelled to explore regions and subjects that capture his interest. Roger has made it his life’s study to gather and understand information from these special places. This expands his knowledge of nature, history, architecture and culture which inspires him to create his poignant oil paintings.

Crediting historical artists, such as John Carlson, Arthur Streeton, Isaac Levitan and John Singer Sargent for their example. Roger has developed his own unique voice in his art and believes that a painting on location, or from life, is an essential element to being an artist. Roger captures the emotion of the scene he is painting by drawing on his knowledge and his dedication to art.

“Art is a privilege, gift and journey.”

Roger’s oil paintings have been displayed in galleries and museums throughout the United States and have won many awards which include: First Place in the Barnes and Farms National Juried Art Show, Museum Purchase Award and third place at the Easton Plein Air Competition as well as the Gold Medal Award from the Hudson Valley Art Association. His work has also been accepted in Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibitions, and he was accepted into the Art Renewal Center as a Living Master. He was also a finalist In the ARC Salon and won Artist choice award at the 2013 American Impressionist Society National Show. Roger has been published by: International Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, American Art Collector Magazine, Plein-Air Magazine and the Artist Magazine. His works are owned by private collectors across the country and include many well-known celebrities and major corporations.

Roger shares his knowledge, teaching workshops throughout the country. He believes in capturing the essence of his subjects and instills this in his students whether teaching on location, figurative, studio or still life.

“To capture the essence of the scene, making the viewer feel they can step into a different day, and understand the mood, and beauty of that day is my goal.

New Book Release:

 

A Passion For Painting – Roger has been writing a book for several years….Well, its almost here. A huge thank you to our friend, artist and editor Larry R. Richardson. This book would not be where it is or what it is with out his expert editing, advise and hand holding.  A PASSION FOR PAINTING aptly describes Roger Dale Brown and his life-long fervor for artistic excellence.  Even a casual visit to his studio will unveil his dedication and commitment for painting.  Eye-opening, massive landscapes stand on his easel and adorn the walls, waiting for transit to eager gallery owners and collectors from Maine to Montana.   Looking around, the viewer is drawn not so much by the detail as by the subtleness of design and colors on canvas.

These pages are embellished with over 200 images from the brush of one of America’s premier landscape artists – Roger Dale Brown.  Although his Southern heritage emerges throughout this book, he equally embraces the culture and ambience from other places then interprets the scene with his signature mixture of oil paint.  No matter where the book is opened, the journey through script and illustration are alluring.

“The artist’s ultimate aim should be to evoke the mood of a strand of time,” Roger reflects.  “I use the scene as a platform to create from, instead of being literal to it.  God made us creative.  If we are being literal to a scene and do not interpret with our own voice, we are depriving ourselves of using the talent given to us to its greatest capability.”

Follow Roger as he travels through life, exploring regions of this country and abroad.  The paintings he renders are tributes to his craftsmanship, an artistic voice that is clearly A Passion For Painting.
