Don studied at the University of Texas. He also studied under the famous Russian colorist, Sergei Bongart in the early 1980's as Bongart’s last scholarship student and apprentice.

In 1995 Don Sahli opened the Sahli School of Art in Evergreen, Colorado where he continues the tradition of color and temperature in the lineage of the Russian masters. Sahli keeps this tradition alive in giving back to the student as this is a critical aspect of the artistic learning processes.

Presently, Don’s work is represented by galleries across the country and in private collections nationally and internationally. Known for his use of paint; his brush stroke is exciting and carries a positive emotion to the viewer. His work is diverse carrying many labels, plein air, impressionist, and colorist, realist, luminous, modern, and contemporary.
