The owners of Palace by the Sea are also big fans of Western Art and many of these fine artists have also been our guests. This is the next installment in a series of profiles of some of the fine artists who have chosen to vacation at Palace by the Sea.

 

If you are unfamiliar with the term Western Art, here is a quick overview from Wikipedia:

Visual Art of the American West is sometimes referred to as “Western Art” by Americans. This relatively new category of art includes paintings, sculptures and sometimes Native American crafts. Initially, subjects included exploration of the western states and cowboy themes. Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell are two artists who captured the “Wild West” on canvas. Presently, the genre flourishes in variety and popularity within the United States. Many designers and decorators in the southwest include “Western Art” in homes and businesses.

 

Featured Artist: Michael Dudash

 

buffalohunter* thetaleshecouldtell_a MexicoVa 3 awinterssolitude_a
Michael’s career as a successful artist began in 1977, when he became a full time illustrator and oil painter. He has done so many assignments, commissions and gallery paintings that he has lost count. “Somewhere in the neighborhood of eighteen hundred paintings I would guess” he says.

Over his career Michael has written and published articles for American Artist, The Artists Magazine and Step-by-Step Graphics; his work has been showcased twice in Art of the West magazine, most recently in the Mar/April 2014 issue, and Southwest Art in Dec 2010.  He has featured his work as a guest lecturer and instructor at the Booth Western Art Museum, Brigham Young University, Washington University, St. Louis, Mo, the Rhode Island School of Design, the Columbus College of Art & Design, Mass Art, the Graphic Artists Guild in VT, the Kansas City Art Director’s Club, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles and Dallas, TX, the Savannah College of Art & Design, and taught an illustration class for the Vermont Community College.

While living in VT, Michael was fortunate to have had the opportunity to paint and study with Richard Schmid and his wife Nancy Guzik. Michael has participated in Richard’s Rist Canyon Art Auction for the last several years as well. “Richard is a wonderful teacher and human being, and I have always appreciated his ability to inspire his friends, fellow artists and collectors.”

Michael has had numerous one man shows and participated in a large number of group shows. In Sept of 2014, he won Artist Choice and Patrons Choice Awards at the Quest For The West Show at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, IN.  He has won awards of excellence in the 2004 & 2005 National Oil Painters of America shows, including best portrait. His paintings are in the collections of the Pearce Western Art Museum (Corsicana, TX), Booth Museum of Western Art (Cartersville, GA) and the The Museum of Biblical Art (Dallas, TX). He has conducted workshops at his studio and in several locations including Los Angeles, Dallas & San Antonio, TX, Columbus, OH, and Tokyo, Japan. His ever growing number of corporate and individual collectors appreciate the draftsmanship, use of light and colorful atmosphere that Michael is able to bring to his work.

Although he has increasingly been turning his attention to painting the characters and history of the old west, Michael still loves to paint the variety of subjects that he finds around him, and is equally adept at masterfully handling landscapes, figures, portraits and still lifes.

“I have always been interested in well executed and beautifully designed oil painting, no matter what the venue, style or label.” Michael says. “Most artists, myself included, can count dozens of incredible representational painters who have come before us as positive influences and teachers. Although often the most important, subject matter is only a part of the painting. The challenge for a painter is to take his subject of interest and create works of art that are moving, beautiful, timeless and universal in their appeal. As for me, I have to daily rely on the good Lord and His inspiration to help me accomplish this formidable task.”

Although trained in the fine arts, his decision to begin a career in classic illustration won him a prestigious and national reputation, with his numerous awards and hundreds of Clients being far too many to list. His transition back into fine art was the natural course for Michael, as his influences as an oil painter have always been the classical painters such as Sargent, Zorn, Fechin, the Impressionists, as well as the golden age illustrators like N. C. Wyeth, Dean Cornwell, Haddon Sundbloom, Harvey Dunn and Rockwell.

As with most artists, Michael is incredibly passionate about his life’s work, but he does allow himself considerable time to pursue his equally passionate commitment to Christian ministry. He lives with his wife Valerie, and currently works out of his home and studio in the Coeur d’Alene, ID area.

John Fawcett
An uncommonly talented artist working in watercolor and oil, John Fawcett has spent his life studying and gaining inspiration from his subjects.  His first hand knowledge of horses and dogs is evident in his detailed images which often focus on the relationships between animals and people.  “I want to make the viewer smell the horse, hear the hoof beats, and have all their senses be taken in by the painting.”

John Fawcett

 

home_page_small Dec2008-6

John Fawcett was born in 1952 and grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Although his family lived in town, they kept horses nearby.  After his father challenged him to raise half the cost, a ten year old Fawcett became the proud owner of a mare, Copper, purchased for $150.00.  In tandem with his passion for horses, was a desire to draw and paint.  “I was always really interested in art and my parents were very supportive, but I didn’t have any formal art training.  All through high school, college and vet school, I did artwork for student  newspapers and yearbooks, but I never considered art for a career.”  Instead, he studied pre-veterinary medicine at the University of New Hampshire and received his doctorate at Iowa State University in 1978.  After working for both an equine and small animal veterinarian, he opened up his own veterinary practice in 1980 in Pennsylvania where he practiced for the next 20 years.  As his practice grew to a total of 5 veterinarians, his passion for art grew as well, and he sold his practice in 1996 to paint full time and pursue his dream.

Fawcett started out painting mainly in watercolor but has introduced oils to his repertoire.  “It depends on the subject matter and what medium I feel like painting with at the time.  There is a certain softness and fluidness with watercolors, while oils provide rich color and textures and a buttery feeling.”   Since taking the leap of faith to become an artist, he has been invited to participate in some of the most prestigious Western art shows in the country and has developed relationships with the top galleries.

Expressing gratitude for those who have helped his career along the way, including western artist, Jim Bama and Ron Riddick, John also gives several painting workshops a year to help others.  He has been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, Western Horseman, Cowboys and Indians, The Equine Image, Informart, and US Art magazines.  He and his wife Elizabeth, their three Labrador Retrievers, and four Quarter Horses divide their time between a farm in southern Pennsylvania and a ranch in northern Colorado.

Artist’s Statement

In my paintings I strive to combine romantic idealism with historical reality to create lasting interpretations of America’s westward expansion and the heroic people who lived it. — Jim Carson

Jim Carson was born July 8, 1942 in Little Rock, Arkansas and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. He received a Bachelor of Science from Memphis State University in 1964. In 1970, he earned a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry and molecular physics from New York University, and subsequently accepted a postdoctoral fellowship to Princeton University to continue research in molecular physics. His doctoral thesis and several other research articles were published in the Journal of Chemical Physics over the next two years. From the fall of 1971 to the spring of 1973 he was on the faculty of Princeton University. During these two years he also commuted to New York every evening to study life drawing, life painting and composition at the Art Students League. He had decided to change his career from science to art, his life long passion.

After two years at the Art Student’s League, he continued his art education in private study with several well-known illustrators and painters, and in 1974 began a career illustrating covers of western novels for major publishing houses in New York. He met and married Marguerite Wilson in 1976, and they made their home in Baldwin, New York on Long Island. They have two children, Sarah and Miles. In May of 1980, he founded Hankins and Tegenborg, Ltd, in New York City, an agency representing commercial illustrators. This same year he joined the May Gallery of Scottsdale, AZ and began painting and selling western historical paintings.

Over the next 21 years he divided his energies among his agency, his illustration and fine art careers. In 1984 he was nominated for the Spur Award for best western cover. From 1983 to 1998, he participated in numerous group shows at the May Gallery, and in 1999 he joined with two other artists for a three-man show. Starting in 1990 he has been selected every year as a Gold Medal artists of the May Gallery an honor signifying high sales and popularity with collectors. Stuart Johnson invited him in 1997, and every year since, to participate in his prestigious American Miniatures show at Settler’s West Gallery in Tucson. He had his first one-man show October 2000, and this show has become an annual event. In 2001 he moved his studio to Saluda, North Carolina in the Carolina Smokey Mountains to devote full time to his historical painting. His paintings are in numerous private collections including that of the late Stephen Ambrose and the prestigious Pearce Western Art collection.

“I take pleasure in creating pictures that open a window on history, so that more people can share in the view. I would describe my work as ‘painterly realism’. I strive to capture the true nature of light and color, and I make little effort to disguise the brushstrokes. Even while rendering meticulous detail, I endeavor to paint boldly and deliberately.”

 

SeaOfBuffalo - 24 x 36

 

Bradley Schmehl is very thankful for the Lord’s gifts and blessings in his life. He first manifested a talent for creating pictures at a very early age. As a boy of five or six he drew a picture of some construction workers who had been laboring in the street in front of his parents’ house. His mother, noticing some of the figures in the picture were much smaller than the others, questioned her son about it. His response: “Those little men in my picture are farther away than the bigger ones.” She saw that Brad demonstrated an intuitive grasp of the Law of Diminution in perspective, just one of the concepts that would be clarified and developed in his subsequent training.

Born March 28, 1962, Brad graduated from Pennsylvania School of Art and Design, Marietta, Pennsylvania (now Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, Lancaster, Pennsylvania) in 1984. He is a Student Founder of that institution and also has taught there as an adjunct Instructor of Book Illustration from 1993-98. He continues to train himself in anatomy and the artistic disciplines and studies the works of his artistic heroes such as Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Edouard DeTaille, Tom Lovell and many others. At various points in his professional sojourn, he has been an easel painter, a book illustrator, a theatrical scenic designer, a technical illustrator, and of late, even a real estate investor!

Along the way, Brad married his best friend, the former Rebecca Marie Buckley, in September 1987. She now serves as his business manager in addition to the many other roles she so capably fills. Brad and Becky appear together at gallery shows and are both actively involved in supporting battlefield preservation, historical and military organizations. Brad also has enjoyed Civil War reenacting whenever his busy schedule permitted. He enjoys horseback riding and throughout most of the decade of 2000-2010 he participated in Civil War events as a mounted officer. In, 2001, Brad worked alongside Robert Duvall, Bruce Boxleitner and Stephen Lang on the Ron Maxwell motion Picture “Gods and Generals”(released 2003) He can be seen portraying an officer on Stonewall Jackson’s staff.(In case one wants to search the film for him, he is the only one of Jackson’s staff officers riding a buckskin mare.)

Bradley’s artwork in the Military History genre continues to earn him a growing and enthusiastic following across the nation. His paintings  and prints reside in numerous private, corporate and government collections such as:

-Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, Georgia

-US Army War College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

-Delaware State Capitol, Dover, Delaware

-Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

-Silver Companies, Boca Raton, Florida

Bradley has been commissioned to paint class gift paintings for four different graduating classes of the US Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2013. as well as the class of 2004 of the Command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth Kansas.(His work is featured in the book “Class Gift History, 1953-2013″, published by the US Army War College Foundation, Carlisle, PA.)

Bradley was commissioned in 2006 to paint a series of 13 large oils for the Silver companies, developers of the Celebrate Virginia complex in Fredericksburg, Virginia, a project that kept him busy until late 2008.

Bradley was commissioned by the Washington County Lincoln Society in Kentucky in 2008 to paint a depiction of the capture of Sarah Mitchell, an ancestor of Abraham Lincoln, for the Washington County Lincoln Museum.

In 2010, Brad was commissioned by Excelon Corporation (Three Mile Island) to do a painting that included all branches of the military for  use as an “Honor Wall”(6′ x 26′)in the plant. The wall was a montage of imagines from all the military services as well as brass plaques featuring the name of each employee who served in the military.

Bradley’s automotive paintings were the subject of a 1984 article in the prestigious “Automobile Quarterly”(vol.27, no.2), and his military artwork has graced the covers of several Civil War and Military magazines.

Bradley’s work had focused almost exclusively on Civil War subjects between 1995 and 2009, although his style readily lends itself to an  authoritative portrayal of virtually any historical subject or period. His personal artistic interests range from figure and portrait work to equestrian and landscape subjects. More recently, his scope has grown to include a variety of subjects including western Landscape, wildlife and Native American scenes. His Work is represented by Settler’s West Gallery, Tucson, Arizona; Altermann Galleries, Scottsdale, Arizona and Trailside Galleries, Jackson, Wyoming.

sailfish sculpt light blueSailfish 1Manzanillo: The Sailfish Capital of the World

The coastal resort destination of Manzanillo is located on Mexico’s central Pacific Coast overlooking the twin bays of Manzanillo and Santiago. Active travelers and sports enthusiasts visiting this region of Mexico can take part in a variety of Manzanillo activities and outdoor adventure sports. One of the most popular Manzanillo activities is sport fishing, and the town attracts thousands of sport fishermen to its shores each year.

The waters just off the coast of Manzanillo are teeming with marine life and sailfish and marlin are plentiful year-round, though you’ll have the best chance of catching sailfish if you arrive during the sailfish season that runs from November to March. Each year in November, Manzanillo hosts the International Sailfish Competition attracting sport fisherman from around the world.

The impressive sailfish population in and around Manzanillo has helped to give the seaside town its nickname, “The Sailfish Capital of the World,” and a towering 25-meter turquoise statue of a sailfish has been erected along the Manzanillo coast in front of the town’s centro historico (historic center) and jardin (main plaza). Other species of fish that inhabit the waters surrounding Manzanillo include dorado (mahimahi), giant tuna, rooster fish, sea bass, wahoo, dolphin fish, snapper and yellowtail.

Charter a fishing boat in Manzanillo and hit the water to try your hand at sport fishing. After all, you’ve got a good chance of catching the big one here in the world’s sailfish capital. Afterwards, you can choose to return your catch to the ocean, carry it back to shore where it can be cleaned and prepared to your liking at one of the local restaurants or have it mounted to take home with you. Regardless of what you decide to do with your catch, sport fishing in Manzanillo is guaranteed to be a memorable experience.

manz with sculpt SONY DSC

Manzanillo is not only known as a place for relaxation, but also as the first shipyard in Latin America (dating form 1531) and it currently is the most important commercial port in Mexico.  Located on the coast of the Mexican Pacific ocean, at a point where the twin bays of Manzanillo and Santiago can be seen, this destination is located in a region with several ecosystems and, as a result of this, it is the perfect destination to participate in beach, ecotourism and adventure sports activities. The renovated historic center of Manzanillo and it’s cuisine await you.
