True Blue is proud to feature Paul Nealon as our Local Artist of the Month for March, 2011. Paul makes landscape paintings which combine realism with a powerful sense of the serenity and ambiance of his environments.

His artist statement  details his journey: 

“After forty-five years in the business world, doing financial management for businesses and trusts, I retired and returned to painting. While I had not painted in thirty years, I had worked in clay doing pottery on the wheel and hand building of Irish cottages.

I paint realistic scenes of places I have visited. My hope is to share my experiences with those who see my paintings so they too can enjoy the beauty as I have. My Irish pictures feature the landscape and buildings that characterize the country. The mills and other buildings are found throughout the rural America. My coastal paintings are from the South Carolina lowlands.”

Paul’s work can be seen at True Blue through the end of the month, and also on his website.
