David’s gorgeous oil paintings focus on representational scenes of fading icons in urban and suburban America, many of them familiar to those in Union County, NJ. By capturing these rich and vivid memories, he is endowing each moment with light and atmosphere, capturing the essence of a bygone culture and the lives that have graced it.
Donald B. David’s encounter with the arts began with a pencil and pad in early childhood, which led him to discovering oil paint. His experimentations with rich tones launched a lifelong journey with the medium. “I find the process of oil paint and brush alluring in and of itself,” explains David. “And going out to find the vanishing subject matter with the heartfelt stories of the people attached to this Americana is very moving and profound. It is my responsibility as a painter to visually represent them to the best of my ability.”
