You'll find me today at Escape Into Life, where I've posted a new Artist Watch feature on painter Randall David Tipton.

Born in the West, Randall David Tipton lives and works in Oregon, where he is drawn especially to the Oregon coast and the rain forests and wetlands surrounding Portland. While he paints primarily realistic landscapes, he also produces beautiful abstract works. His paintings have been shown in scores of solo and group exhibitions in Colorado,  New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. He will have a solo exhibition in 2016 at Coos Art Museum, Coos Bay, Oregon. He has been awarded a number of artist residencies, including, most recently, residencies at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, Otis, Oregon; Brush Creek Ranch, Saratoga, Wyoming; and Whiskeytown National Recreational Area, California. Randall also teaches painting.

Today's Artist Watch column showcases eight of Randall's paintings and includes both his Artist Statement and a brief biography.
