In my paintings, I try to translate my feelings of a place or an object onto paper with the same emotional impact that I receive when I experience it.
J. Rodney Reveal was born and raised in Noblesville, but began his serious study of art at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California, where he was granted a full painting and sculpture scholarship. In 1971, he returned to Indianapolis to continue his studies at the John Herron School of Art.
He was encouraged by Gordon Morrison, his high school art teacher, and inspired by Floyd Hopper, with whom he studied for many years. Mr. Reveal was a builder/designer of residential homes for 25 years, and a full-time Noblesville Firefighter for 30 years.
Now that he is retired, he is able to dedicate more time to his watercolor paintings of landscapes, structural details and nature.
