Vance Miller (1912-2002) was born in Princeton, WV, lived in VA, Baltimore, MD and Blacksburg, VA. His impressionist style gave attention to light, atmosphere and color, making choppy strokes with a palette knife. He painted scenes of nature for over 50 years, inspired by changing seasons of the Blue Ridge Mountains, painted on location, from memory and from sketches. He would often return to a favorite place to observe and paint the scene capturing the changing effects of light, shadows and reflections. He began to paint full time at age 60. In later years Miller traveled and was inspired to paint Yosemite, the giant redwood forest, Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Santa Fe, Taos, Rehoboth Beach and the Gulf at Madeira Beach, FL.
