Donna Roper Oil Painting
Welcome to my website.

I am an oil painter living near Richmond Virginia. Originally from Washington D.C., I came to Virginia to study art at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduation I worked as a graphic designer in New York City and Richmond, Virginia and had a wonderful, talented son named Arik.

My last nine years have been devoted exclusively to oil painting. Nature in all its forms, human figures, and horses in particular are my favorite subjects. The back of a horse is my favorite place to be.

Working from life, imagination and photos, I try to create intriguing painted images that capture the power, beauty and magic of a few of the special moments of my experience, imagination or dreams.
