Artist Statement PAUL McMILLAN is a self-taught artist best known for his classical realism. The imagery of his paintings reflects a unique view of diverse subject matter as well as excellence in execution. Paul’s style ranges from classical to abstract, and occasionally includes original poetry and music as subject matter. His artwork is strong in light, shadow and atmosphere, with deep rich colors and finely blended smooth surfaces...

PAUL'S PAINTINGS are created with a wet color technique, using stand oil mixed with small amounts of beeswax and mastic resin as a medium. This adds to the depth and luminosity of pigments and works well for both impasto and smooth surfaces. As a finish, a very thin coat of varnish is applied to protect surface of the painting without altering the sheen or texture...

BORN 1954 in Kansas raised in Texas, Paul moved to Taos, NM in 1988, Bellefonte PA in 2000, and Ithaca, NY in 2001. He began pursuing art as a profession in 1978 and has received numerous AWARDS, including,
Runner-up, Texas Sesquicentennial Artist of the Year Contest,
1986... Runner-up, Bell Telephone Texas Sesquicentennial Cover Contest,
1986... Best of Show, Taos Spring Arts, 1995...
Second Overall, 25th Anniversary Taos Fall Arts Festival, 1999...
