An example of fine art by JR SECOR

Photo of JR SECOR


I was born in New England, but the landscape of the southwest has called to me since I was a boy. I began as a watercolorist, painting the stark beauty of the rocky New England coastline. But when we moved to Arizona, I discovered that I could better capture the vibrant depth of colors of the southwest with acrylic paint.I now live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where I enjoy capturing the vibrant colors of the ocean, sunrises and sunsets on the southwest gulf coast. I also continue to paint scenes of my beloved southwest U.S. and travel there as often as possible to keep my vision fresh. My subject matter is most often landscape and still life, but I also enjoy creating "mindscapes" - scenes that come straight from my imagination. Texture and color are the most important aspects to me artistically, and I work in both palette knife and brush to achieve the desired effects.My work is exhibited in galleries and juried shows throughout the U.S. and is collected internationally.
