Artist
Posey Gaines Glenpool, Oklahoma

Using flowing watercolors, artist Posey Gaines creates atmospheric, high-contrast landscapes developed mostly from intuition. He often starts a piece by simply putting paint to paper and then decides on the elements to bring the composition together. He draws on memories of places he has lived and reference photos taken on road trips to arrive at the final serene and eye-catching view. Posey says that from a young age artistic inspiration has touched everything he's done in life. He plays the piano, the guitar and the bass guitar, writes poetry and wrote a book. Posey first discovered watercolor in the 1970s while auditing art classes at East Central College near his home. Over the years, he's honed his skills attending workshops and watching DVDs. Today, he enjoys painting from a tidy home studio while listening to music. True to his well-rounded personality, when he’s not making art, he works as a web developer.

    Artist Statement

    For me, painting is not just replicating what I see, it is more about painting a feeling or mood. I paint in watercolor because I love the fluidity of the medium, and I use that fluidity as a guide to what needs to happen in a painting. Inspiration comes from the myriad of places I have lived, and I often take road trips to capture landscape scenes for reference in my studio. The principle that guides my work is to take the viewer into the painting. My motivation for painting is my love of the natural world.
