It is my pleasure to be painting cowboy and western art. I love west Texas, and southwestern Fort Worth is a wonderful place to experience the Texas cowboy. Texas offers an endless supply of inspiration for cowboy art. Within miles of us there are horse and cattle ranches, stables, windmills, bluebonnets, fantastic scenery, incredible sunsets, great rodeos with practicing cowboys, and the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. I have been painting western art since 2003. I particularly like to paint the western locations that I have visited and scenes from my favorite western movies. An early art teacher told me to always paint subjects that I enjoy and my art would be satisfying. So what you see here represents my enjoyment of the western experience. My biggest inspiration comes from the natural beauty we have all around us in West Texas. It is my goal to capture the spirit and beauty of the west as it might have been 150 years ago. Frederick Remington and Charles Russell are two of my favorite artists. I hope that my art will continue to improve and inspire. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my art with me.
Ps 27:4 One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. (ESV)
