Kevin Daley

Maine artist Kevin Daley is an educator and gifted fine artist who creates paintings en plein air and in his studio in West Paris, Maine.  Whether depicting an old barn or a quiet cove, his traditional style paintings are a visual and poignant portrayal of that place in time.

When asked what inspires you to paint? Kevin replied, “I’m often drawn to subjects that evoke either a sense of peace or a sense of loneliness or isolation. Maine, particularly, offers an abundance of landscapes and buildings that catch my attention.

I love the process of discovering a subject that interests me then digging in to see what exactly will happen. Will the creation of this painting be smooth, or will this new work generate unforeseen problems and become a learning experience? What emotions do I have about the subject as I spend hours studying it or working with it? Can I communicate some of these emotions to the viewer?

My most successful paintings are those that seem to “paint themselves’ from the moment I begin them. These are particularly joyful occasions when I feel both totally relaxed and completely focused. The final products of these nearly mystical experiences are always paintings that I value greatly. I have found, over time, these are also the works that other people seem to like the best.”
