Robert Sloan's Profile

About

Robert A. Sloan, 56, lives in San Francisco with his beloved Siamese sidekick, Ari Cat.

Robert's representational landscape, still life and animal portrait paintings range between realism and impressionism. Mentored by Johannes Vloothuis, his palette ranges from muted natural colors to the brilliant saturated colors of the "School of Light & Color" by Susan Sarback. He's also studied online with Charlotte Herczfeld and Deborah Secor.

Now that he's moved back to the City by the Bay, he's planning a series of San Francisco landmarks and the less famous yet equally lovely scenes he finds every time he goes out the door.

Artist's statement: I paint all my subjects with a reverence for nature and delight in the natural world. Even people, buildings and manufactured objects are part of nature, bathed in the same light we all share…

Artist's statement: I paint all my subjects with a reverence for nature and delight in the natural world. Even people, buildings and manufactured objects are part of nature, bathed in the same light we all share. Color inspires me, nothing makes me want to paint so much as seeing an array of brilliant pastels or pencils lined up in chromatic order.

I paint happy, beautiful subjects because I've had a hard life. Contemplating beauty and painting helped me overcome any troubles. The more often I paint, the more beautiful the world becomes in all its aspects.

I paint better than I used to and not as well as I will. I believe art is one of those wonderful things in life where you can grow and learn right up to your last breath.
