Inside you will find landscape oil paintings and seascape oil paintings created by Dave Goldman from his home studio in Mills River, right near the fantastic city of Asheville in the mountains of western North Carolina.
Look for me and my landscape and seascape oil paintings at my art festival exhibits, or call or email me for an appointment if you would like to see a painting in person and visit my studio in Mills River near Asheville. Mills River is now home of the new and wonderful North Carolina Sierra Nevada brewery .
Some of my landscape paintings are always available at Woodlands art gallery in Hendersonville, NC. Check the gallery page above for pricing, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you.
In my painting I am interested in conveying the elegance, mystery, and romance of open spaces. I am particularly fascinated with atmospheric effects from thunderstorms, banks of mist and distant haze. As I explore the mountains, grasslands, oceans, and other American wilderness for inspiration I will continue to bring my interpretation of their beauty to you in my painting.
Thanks for your support and your interest in my artwork!

I use oil paint with traditional techniques including wet-on-wet and dry-brush blending, scumbling, and glazing. I use old-fashioned bristle brushes to create flowing, ethereal effects. Princeton brushes and Gamblin oil paints are some of my favorites. I also use palette knives for developing textural effects.
These landscapes and seascape paintings are imaginary scenes that I conjure in the studio. My paintings are inspired by my relationships with oceans, forests, grasslands, mountains, deserts, and female form. The strategy is generally to just start painting, invent and explore as I work, and see where it takes me.
My boyhood wanderings in the woods and messing about in boats led me to initially pursue professions in biology and oceanography. I still wander in the woods and mess about in boats when I can. I explore many environments of the American wilderness as a naturalist and artist, and my paintings express my fascination with these wild places.
