Paintings by Don Hall



                                      “Seneca Creek”
Don Hall started painting at 33 and was inspired by the Hudson River School of painting. He concentrates primarily on landscape painting in oils. Don has a keen eye for natural light that in turn influences his paintbrush in extraordinary ways. He travels extensively throughout the United States and paints almost exclusively en plein air capturing rural points of view in an impressionist manner. 

                                        “Along Leading Creek”
I recently viewed a handful of his paintings and was mesmerized by their somewhat folklike point of view but could still recognize some very academic influences. Don wonderfully captures a sense of place and time with the use of a very vivid color palette. His paintings are definitely a testament to the rural beauty I've experienced in West Virginia trout fishing. Visit www.donhallart.com
