Biography from Helena Fox Fine Art:
Billyo O’Donnell thrives on his passion for creating paintings en plein air that mark the exact point in time at which his inspiration happens.  He thinks of his paintings as a diary of his artwork telling a story of himself at that moment.  When he paints, it reminds him of how he must react spontaneously to inspiration in life or chance losing that significant experience.  And, it is his easy nature in his style of living, synchronizing with the ease he feels when creating his works of art, that make those moments unique.

When asked about the greatest pleasure in his profession, Billyo answered, "It’s the experience of painting outside.  The snow, strong wind, cold, muggy heat, mosquitoes, they all remind me of life and how we must stay focused and keep pushing on.   As I think about masses, color, relationships, the harmony of the piece, value, strokes and textures and combine them with the energy of the land and the environment around me, it transcends the quality of staying focused and persevering in life."

Perseverance and nature have always been a part of Billyo’s life.  Perhaps the natural part of him began in his early days when he grew up west of St. Louis in an area where the prairie transforms into hills as it approaches the Missouri River.  He explored the country then, as a child, making the connection with nature that has continued on to today and into his landscape paintings.


Artist Statement:
"The doorway to self expression in painting is built upon mastering the fundamentals and establishing an understanding of the visual language of paint. I think of my paintings as a diary, my work telling of myself. Painting in plein air continually reminds me to react spontaneously to inspiration in life or risk losing the moment that's before me.  The experience of painting outside, the snow, strong wind, cold, muggy heat, mosquitoes – they all remind me of life and how we must stay focused and keep pushing on.  As I think about masses, color, relationships, the harmony of the piece, value, strokes and textures, and combine them with the energy of the land and the environment around me, it transcends the quality of staying focused and persevering in life.”
