Joseph Orr paints the Landscape of America in all his favorite places. Travel and painting have been his passions from an early age and he has successfully combined both for nearly 50 years. His love of the landscape requires the welcome study of atmospheric nuances, as well as color and seasonal change. He enjoys sketching and painting on location, year around. For Joseph, the love of putting paint to canvas in portraying a scene is both a challenge and an adventure. Through his work he invites the viewer to come along.
Grasping the acrylic medium early in his career, Joseph is now recognized as one of it’s experts and has written material for several art instruction books and magazines. His paintings are among collections across the country, both private and public.
Mr. Orr is a founder and current signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Society. He works from his studio in Missouri, but his paintings are represented by prominent art galleries across America.
Magazines, Art of the West, Southwest Art, American Artist, The Artist’s and Workshop have featured his work. Among books in which Mr. Orr’s paintings illustrate the pages are: Art From The Parks by Rachel R. Wolf, A Town On Two Rivers by Victoria Hubbell and Magnolias, Porches & Sweet Tea by Pat Branning.
