Noel Savignac paints bright, colorful landscape paintings that convey positive feelings for the viewers. His impressionistic semi-realistic style comes from his love of the mountains, climbing 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado, fly fishing and fly tying, skiing, and 30 years as a scientist. His preferred medium is oil-on-canvas because of the way the pigments blend, how they flow on the canvas, and how easy a picture can be modified over several days. Pictures, photos, and plein air (outdoor) observations provide subject matter for his paintings. Fun, excitement, adventure, challenge, and scientific discipline are part of each oil and/or mixed media painting. He found guidance from Georgia O’Keeffe, “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way.” His mission is to share his love of life and fine art with others through his paintings.

Artist Statement

His artistic education began at CNM in Albuquerque followed by tutoring from 6 professional artists, 13 painting workshops and multiple on-line tutorials. Previously, he had a successful career as a consulting scientist in Radiation Protection.

Noel Savignac has donated several paintings to UNM Hospital, and to physicians who specialize in cancer treatment, pain management, and surgeries to relieve pain, in the hope that seeing a cheerful colorful painting will help the patient's healing process and take their mind of their trauma.
