Biography:
 

John Beatty is a Richmond resident and artist who comes from a family of Ontario painters. He is related to John William Beatty who painted with members of the Group of Seven and later became acting principal of the Ontario College of Art. John has been artistically motivated and interested in art all of his life. School art projects and sports provided him with the subject matter he needed to practice his developing drawing skills. Coming from a small town , he loved the great outdoors and its connection with nature. This interest began when he started accompanying his father on plein air excursions (painting outdoors) around where he lived.

John's painting career began while recovering from a serious hockey accident while playing Intercollegiate hockey in Toronto. With his dad's oils, he started painting scenes he liked from  popular calendars of the time. Encouraged by his early success, he devoted more time to painting whenever he could. He soon got into photography and set out to acquire his own references to work from.

After graduating from Ryerson in Business in 1963, he began a career in the brewing industry but it became a challenge to find time to paint after working and continuing to be very active in a number of sports.

It was not until after moving to BC in 1967, after marrying, raising a young family and then returning to UBC and acquiring a teaching degree did he eventually get back to his passion to be an artist. He did his painting entirely during vacation time and this pattern continued until he retired from teaching in Vancouver after 26 busy years. Retirement allowed him time to paint more regularly, to travel and to attend many fruitful workshops with noted artists such as Gordon Smith, Mike Svob, Neil Patterson, Arne Westerman, Jean Pederson. Tony O'Regan, Amanda Jones and David Goatley. He also took extra credit courses in art while at UBC.

He paints regularly now in the studio and en plein air with the group Men In Hats., www.meninhats.ca  He exhibits and sells his work mainly in the Metro Vancouver area in numerous art events and festivals throughout the year. More than 45 % of his over 1080 paintings have been sold to collectors that are attracted to his painterly landscapes because of their colour and contrasts of light, their mood and the atmosphere that stimulated his senses. Shorelines of trees, rocks, beaches, old buildings and boats are popular themes. Travel subjects, still-lifes and figures can also be on his agenda. Dense vivid colours are used freely to capture that quiet moment in time that collectors can appreciate and admire for a long time.

John also enjoys changing older paintings to try out new ideas and teachings. Older paintings sometime get painted over when they don't meet his demand for quality work. He believes the best are yet to come.

It is discouraging for him to see how so much subject matter for his paintings has been destroyed in the name of progress.

NEWEST OPENING 

John usually participates in about a dozen group and individual shows in the Lower Mainland. This year with the Covid Pandemic, it has been totally reduced with few opportunities to show except on this website.

John has been outside painting plein air with the active Meninhats Group for a while now. I presently have a painting in a group show at the Richmond Art Centre at the Rotunda on the second floor.

I have donated a painting for the Wigs for Kids Fundraiser in December.

This has certainly been a challenging year. It has unfortunately discouraged my enthusiasm to paint and it took me some time before I adjusted and got back into it. It really was a good opportunity to try new things, tidy up, and make some new choices. I didn't accomplish nearly as much as I should have with the opportunities I had.

Now that I am back in the studio, I have focused on dramatically changing paintings to make them more expressive and I am liking the results so far.

Your comments are welcome and appreciated. With so much inventory available. I am exploring ways I might find homes for my work.

 

 

 

 

 

Collections:
 

At any given time, John has an inventory of over 200 original paintings of various subject matter and sizes that are for sale. Contact him by e-mail if you would like to see more of his work.

John's artwork is held in a number of public and many private collections mainly in Canada and the United States.

To date, John has produced over  1080 oil and acrylic paintings. Over 470 of those have been purchased by very satisfied collectors.

Through generous donations and auctions, John has several paintings on display at the Richmond General Hospital and the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster.

Commissions are welcome. Also if you have special photos of something you would like to see as a painting, feel free to contact.

 

Contact Information:
 Telephone John at (604)275-3066 or e-mail John at jbbeatty@shaw.ca for additional information about pricing etc. The paintings in the website represent only about a fifth of his current inventory.
Artist's Statement:
 

What I choose to paint has to do with subject matter that stimulates my feelings, reactions, and observations. I am continually on the lookout for those lush visual images or special things. Photographic references I have taken over the years, are often used as a source. As artists we are so much more aware and alert to our surroundings. Now that I am retired from teaching, I am dedicating more time, energy, and interest into art despite my other passions such as tennis, golf, pickleball,photography, bridge and reading. It's a great life.

I am interested in having gallery representation. To view more of John's inventory, contact him by phone or e-mail to make an appointment.

I can be commissioned to do a painting for you from your references. A number of things can be done to enhance a photo when creating a painting. I'd like to help you with this.
