Nature Coast Exhibit No. 3 Jurist

The Art Center of Citrus County
Announces Nature Coast Exhibit No. 3 Jurist

Don Borie

Painting people started my art habit and it came to this!
Jurist for this exhibit will be Ocala artist Don Borie. With a background in commercial art and
illustration, Don’s work has appeared in The Artists Magazine, Colorado State of the Arts
publication, Florida Times-Union Sunday Magazine, Longmont Times-Call, a requested piece by
National Geographic Society offices, a commissioned portrait of astronaut Vance Brand and
private collections across the country.
Drawing and painting people started my art habit in more years than I care to dwell on…oh,
when painting was easy. Repeat drawing and study refined my observations. The beauty, the
character or actions of a person lend a connection to inspire me in developing oil or pastel
painting. Now the paintings improve by simplifying and focusing on the emotion and impact as
needed. Self-satisfaction is my reward for a successful painting along with the acceptance of the
viewer.
“Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do!”
Artist Edgar Degas stated the truth.
