Profile

Brian James Devine, Painter

Painter, photographer, designer, husband and father
I am a lifelong artist, influenced always by the glimpses of beauty and moments of stillness that inspire while on a hike in the woods or looking at yellowed photos or listening to an old Neil Young record or meandering the bungelow-lined streets of my Portland hometown.  I look backwards for inspiration, seeking a spark from archived Americana and folsky, small town scenes of nostalgia.  I strive to create art that feels organic, wistful and timeless, like an heirloom passed on from a bygone era.  Railroad trestles, weathered front porches, autumn fields, crumbling chimneys and flocks of birds all capture my gaze and inform my vision for creating something that lasts
