Little King by Addren Doss
Oil on linen panel
16 x 20 in.
Addren Doss is known for oil and pastel paintings of animals and landscapes which are filled with strong light and color. Her ongoing series, Bodacious Bovines, is a good example of this. When deciding on which bovine to paint she looks for attitude and treats these paintings as portraits with many of her subjects looking you straight in the eye. She is drawn to patterns of strong light and shadow, and color that glows in late afternoon light. Many of her favorite subjects have been painted in both oil and pastel as she explores how one medium affects the other. She usually meets her subjects while on plein air painting trips around the country.
Addren is a Master Member of Women Artists of the West, Founding Member of the Piedmont Outdoor Painting Society, and Member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina. Her work has been exhibited in venues across the country and can be found in public and private collections in this country and the United Kingdom. She is represented by O’Brien Gallery in Greensboro, North Carolina.
