Warren Loranger counts more ..., 18 Nov 2010 [cached]
Warren Loranger counts more than 50 paintings in his home, half of which he painted himself. But once he got involved with the Englewood Art Center, he barely had time to pick up a paintbrush anymore.
An architectural engineer and successful entrepreneur, Warren usually has four or five projects going at once, even in retirement. It was a painting class he took at the art center while he lived on Manasota Key that led to one such project.
Warren became increasingly involved in the center's operation, eventually purchasing and donating a building and designing and funding several additions to it. To preserve and support the building in which he and others invested so much, he created the Warren Loranger Fund for Englewood Art Center.
"I've always felt that the more I gave away, the more I got," says Warren.

Warren Loranger: One-Man Show
In many ways during his lifetime, Warren Loranger has been a literal one-man show - a self-made businessman, architectural engineer and entrepreneur whose passion was starting and growing companies and leading them to success.
Also a philanthropist and art aficionado with a substantial collection, Warren completed his first painting in 1965, "dabbled" in the medium for a few years, and gradually stopped as his life grew busier. After moving to Florida two decades ago, he took a course at the Venice Arts Center, where he earned the moniker "the Kool-Aid painter" for his unusual choices of materials. When he joined The Glenridge, he met fellow member Jane Dye, who encouraged him to renew his old passion and try acrylics for the first time.
So he did - and now he has earned recognition at The Glenridge and throughout Sarasota for his abstract paintings, portraits and collages. He recently held a one-man show of his work, the first of a planned semi-annual series of one-person shows at The Glenridge. Additionally, he's donated several pieces from his personal collection to The Glenridge. He even served as a member of the advisory board of the Ringling College of Art and Design's Englewood Art Center, which recently displayed his work in an exhibition titled "Ageless Creativity."
Some of Warren's methods are unorthodox, such as applying food coloring with brushes, credit cards or his fingers. "I don't start out knowing what I'm going to paint," he explains, adding that he credits his dyslexia with enhancing his imagination. "When you paint abstract art, you paint what comes out of your head."
One such piece, a watercolor titled "Freedom," hangs in the Glenridge lobby and intrigues the eye with its ambiguous subject matter. Some viewers speculate that it's a sailboat; others see a bird or fish. Warren doesn't offer an answer either way, simply stating that his inspiration included the colors surrounding the lobby and the nearby aquarium.
Warren's newest piece, "Bonsoir Mon Cherie," features a man and woman socializing in a bar, setting the perfect atmosphere for the Thistle Stop, a popular place to mingle and enjoy a drink. "People really like it; they think it's apropos," he says. "It does depart from my usual style, in that it's much larger and more complex than any others I've done before."
Then again, that's not a surprise, coming from Warren. "My whole life has been exploring in one way or another," he says, "so trying something new in painting is totally in character for me."
