Joseph Orr paints the Landscape of America in his home state of Missouri and wherever he journeys. Travel and painting have been his passions from an early age, and he has successfully combined both for over 40 years. His love of the landscape requires the welcome study of atmospheric nuances as well as color and seasonal change. He enjoys sketching from life, on location year round. For Orr, the love of putting paint to canvas in portraying a scene is both a challenge and an adventure, inviting the viewer to come along in the finished work. Grasping the acrylic medium early in his career, Orr is now recognized as one of its experts and has written material for several art instruction books and magazines while his paintings are among collections across the country, both private and public. Joseph Orr is one of the founders of the National Oil and Acrylic Painter's Society.
