Robert Moore - In The Sun
Robert Moore possesses a sincerity and courtesy that reflect his Idaho farm upbringing. He was raised near the Snake River where his appreciation for nature was sparked. A contemplative, quiet individual, Moore discovered art as a way to freely express his feelings.
He prefers painting ‘en plein aire’ to best express the immediate impression of each subject. Plein aire painting allows him to capture the light and color effects of creation’s order. He frequently uses vivid colors and high-keyed values that reveal a spiritually inspired joy. Moore’s paintings have a characteristic mood and energy about them that invite the viewer to experience the beauty he sees in nature. Several trips abroad, including China, Canada and the Tuscan countryside have also inspired many canvases. In recent years, Moore has become a highly sought-after instructor and he teaches multiple workshops a year.
Robert Moore and his family live on a farm in the heart of the Snake River Basin.
