Night of Artists show at Briscoe Museum

 "Together We'll Go" (24x32) o/c 

These three paintings will be in the "Night of Artists" show at the Briscoe Museum in San Antonio, TX, opening March 27th... 

Unfortunately because of the Coronavirus scare, San Antonio has banned social gatherings of 500 people or more, so the opening festivities have been cancelled. The show and sale will, however continue online until further notice. 

Hopefully collectors will not be deterred from purchasing one-of-a-kind original works of top-quality western art that artists have labored to create for this exhibition over the past several months.

 "One Last Look" (14x18) o/lp SOLD

Painters do what they do firstly out of passion, but for those with families (like myself) whose income is wholly dependent upon painting sales via shows like these, it is not hard to be a little nervous when venues like the Briscoe are shut down during such important shows...

 "Grim Shadows" (16x20) o/p

Nevertheless, I remain hopeful that the museum is doing all it can to reroute attendees to an easy and fulfilling experience to acquire beautiful, original works of art... After all, the Briscoe is just as dependent upon this show as are all the artists who've partnered with them~

Valley of the Shadow

 Study (acrylic 5x5)

"Valley of the Shadow" is an allegorical picture of the struggles and trials we each face in life. The rider here, gently coaxing his horse uphill in a rocky terrain beneath a stormy background. The design of this painting (and many of late) is heavily influenced by several of the Taos painters from roughly a hundred years ago... What I appreciate about their work is the liberty they took exaggerating design and emphasizing colour while remaining in the representational arena.

Valley of the Shadow oil (30x30) SOLD

Here I have designed the storm clouds with a southwestern cultural feel to it's shape and rendering. Ideas for this composition came from my sketchbook and recent trips to the Arizona and California deserts.  This painting (along with 3 others) will be featured in the Autry Museum's "Masters of the American West" show and sale opening in Los Angeles, February 8th, 2020~
