The art display at Oak Ridge Public Library for April is a collection of realistic oil paintings created by Rockney McNamara.

McNamara enjoys all art, but states, “I’m from the old school of art.” A native of Minnesota, he grew up surrounded by wildlife and wildlife artists, so nature and the outdoors figure prominently in his compositions.

He enjoys painting oceans, ships, and other nautical scenes. He often visits libraries to get the exact specifics for his paintings, as he did for two compositions of clipper ships. Lifelike details are also seen in his paintings of duck and geese which were submitted for the Colorado duck stamp program.

Three scenes painted on domestic turkey feathers demonstrate Mr. McNamara’s love for wildlife and his delicate skill with a brush. A self-portrait shows him catching his “fantasy” 18 pound bass.

Please visit Oak Ridge Public Library during the month of April to view the striking landscapes and oil paintings that are on display.
