“I want my paintings to inspire people to be still, to listen to that quiet voice, and then rise up assured that they are a part of something bigger than their schedule.” - Mark Keathley
Mark Keathley grew up on the family farm in East Texas and loved romping through the woods and across open fields. It was here, in this environment, where he first spied his mother’s oil painting box in the attic of his country home. After a very disappointing start, he didn’t give up and continued trying, often painting well into the night as a teen. He later attended a small one-man show put on for a friend in his college art class and saw, for the first time, someone selling artwork. He was nineteen then, and this was all it took.
Keathley is able to capture that perfect moment on a hike through the mountains when a majestic elk steps out for an unforgettable experience; or immortalize the light, the water, and the gentle involvement of a man and his horse, all united in a masterful composition. Mark uses his gifts blending bold strokes, amazing color, soul-stirring light, and even some fine detail to bring your focus to the "point" of the painting, allowing you to experience the emotion of the moment. This is where he wants you to stay, not admiring his ability but rather inspired to live.
