According to his website, Robert Stebleton’s distinctive style originated in the Midwest where he grew up. Once he tried acrylics, he knew the versatile medium would forever hold a fascination for him. A common theme of much of Stebleton’s early work focused on the enduring challenge of time and nature. Today, love of nature is evident in his paintings. Whether it’s the liquid movement of a school of koi, an intent expression on the face of the artist’s cat or alligators sunning themselves on a cool Florida winter day, Robert’s attention to details is masterful. The use of color and reflection of light on water creates an abstract of hues and movement. His palate has changed from subtle earth tones to nature’s vast array of color in a visceral sense of beauty and wonder.
“The Ocala City Hall Show, ‘An Artist’s Life: Paintings by Robert Stebleton’ reflects my lifelong pursuit of discovering beauty in the commonplace things in our lives,” said Stebleton. “There’s a variety of subjects in this exhibit, but the thread that ties it together is more than my style, but also a desire to share my vision with the viewer. I hope that guests will enjoy the exhibition and come away with increased appreciation for the road less traveled.”
