This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Don L. Parks (Am. 20th Cent.)

A watercolorist for over 12 years, Parks has concentrated on oils since 1985.  He believes that he should have personally experienced what he paints; thus many of his subjects exist in rural America.  His observations of the Southwest started while growing up on a farm, “tractor time was a good opportunity to study nature.”  After military service he worked as a farm and ranch management specialist for Texas A&M University, which was another opportunity to observe and appreciate rural life.  He believes these experiences have had a major impact on his painting; the “feel” of the subject matter is there.

He paints in an impressionistic style, using a quick simple execution.  Frequently paintings are done on location, where he believes an artist learns to see.  His observations produce art that allows other to enjoy glimpses of our world.

Parks has been in past Midland “Celebrations of the Arts.”  And has studied under Ted Goeschner, Frank Mason, Ovanes Berberian, Scott Christensen, Matt Smith and Clyde Aspevig. He has won awards in numerous regional shows and been included in the Top 200 in the Arts for the Parks competition.  He was chosen as the Distinguished Artist for the 1996 Celebration of the Arts in Midland, Texas.

I am very blessed that I have the opportunity to enjoy God’s creation through painting.\ Hopefully I may share some of that beauty through my paintings.”
