The Artist Says:

Desire, the great equalizer.


Bruce Strickland is a self-taught oil painter but inspired by a handful of influencers. Most notably world renowned artist Donny Finley. Bruce grew up in the small town of Talladega, Alabama, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. He was able to enjoy the beauty of small town America and the simplicity of simple living. Although all of his original childhood and early adulthood work was given away or sold, the one thing he did hold onto was the love of painting. Fascinated and inspired by light, he has returned to his first love to show his inspiration though his oil painting.

Bruce and his wife, Maria, have rescued dozens of cats over the years and are avid supporters of spay/neuter programs as well as rescue shelter adoptions. Bruce uses his work to fund some the donations to these rescues and shelters.

Most of Bruce's artwork star rescued cats or dogs, either from their home or others. Bruce includes the animal's story in each description of his paintings. [...]
