The art of Paul ONeill will be shown in the Rolling River Spirits tasting room during the month of May. Paul was born in Connecticut, moved to Portland and attended Portland State where he earned a BA in Fine Arts.  For the last 30 years he has lived and worked as an artist in SE Portland.  Paul has shown work at numerous venues and galleries throughout the Pacific NW and the New York Tri-State Area.

According to Paul, “The thick texture medium used in the foreground of my paintings was first used about 12 years ago – was a happy accident.  I used the sculpting medium as a last resort attempt to fix a painting I was working on at the time and had not stretched the canvas correctly thus making for a bad outcome.  It was then I discovered it was an incredibly versatile medium that could be used in a wide variety of artistic applications.”

More of Paul’s work can be seen at Fine Art America.
