Randall Scott Harden draws on his travels for a variety of landscapes.
The longtime Noblesville resident specializes in oil paintings of landscapes in the United States and Europe.
“I’ve been painting about 40 years, full-time for about 20 years,” Harden said.
Harden, 52, and Carol Wagner, a Carmel resident, will hold a meet the artists session at Art on Main, 111 W. Main St., Suite 140, Carmel, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 2. Light refreshments will be served. Harden and Wagner are the gallery’s featured artists for August.
“We’ll talk about travels and voyages all over the world,” said Harden, who has been associated with Art on Main since it opened in September 2017. “We’ll have paintings from the Midwest and wine country. I’ll have about 20 pieces up and Carol will have 10 to 15.”
Harden said France and Italy are two of his favorite places to paint.
“If I had to pick one, I’d say France,” said Harden, who has a trip to England and France planned for October.
Harden, who has a home studio in Noblesville, also has his work featured in a gallery in Fort Wayne.
Wagner is retiring from the gallery after this month.
“I’ll still be painting but more or less for pleasure,” said Wagner, who has been painting with oils for 10 years.
Wagner’s specialty is still life paintings, but this show will feature landscapes.
“Mine are primarily around water. That will be the big difference in this show (from Harden’s paintings),” Wagner said. “The paintings are either from my travels or my friends’ travels. I really love rivers, and probably three or four of my pictures are rivers and streams.”
