Oil painter Kyle Paliotto gathers imagery from the beautiful rustic landscape of his local surroundings in North Idaho. He searches out rural settings which display a time gone by when harmony between land and man existed. His style is one that takes from impressionism without disregarding the discipline of representational art up to the early 1900's. Painting plein air on location is essential to his process but the real meat and potatoes is in the studio.
At the age of 42, Kyle has had some great achievements, but his greatest joys are his wife Rebecca and children Vincent and Sophia. Teaching a weekly art class along with workshops has added to his love of art and ability to share his passion. His successes include: Signature Status with the American Impressionist Society, Juried into multiple Oil Painters of America National and regional shows, Winning Honorable Mention in the 13th Annual American Impressionist Society National Show (2012) and also in the Portrait Society of America’s Members Only competition (2010), Best of Show at the CM Russell Auction in Great Falls, Montana (2010) and winning Third Place in American Impressionist Society's 11th Annual National Show (2010). Kyle has been written about in Southwest Art Magazine’s “Artists to Watch” (2008) (2013)(2017) and a feature article in Western Art Collector Magazine (2009) (2010) and (2013).
