Since the turn of the millennium Randy Sexton has become widely regarded as one of the premier plein-air painters working in Northern California. He embraced this tradition, following a brief exploration of abstract and abstract-expressionist art, soon after his arrival in California. He became known for his plein-air landscapes, cityscapes and figures. Yet he also creates still lifes, florals and portraits of extraordinary beauty and strength. stretching boundaries whenever he could. Sexton has a fascination with painting cars that are frequently featured in his work. Using a wide spectrum of brilliant colors, his loose style and strong compositions, clearly lends itself to portraying cars in an almost personal way. Sexton gives his cars personality as well as visual complexity. His most outstanding car paintings have understandably been the ones of older models. Sexton’s trip to Cuba was bound to become a celebration of the genre.
