“Bo Bartlett is an American realist with a modernist vision. His paintings are well within the tradition of American realism as defined by artists such as Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth. Like these artists, Bartlett looks at America’s heart—its land and its people—and describes the beauty he finds in everyday life. His paintings celebrate the underlying epic nature of the commonplace and the personal significance of the extraordinary.”
Tom Butler, excerpt from the book Bo Bartlett, Heartland
I came across Bo Bartlett’s work while doing some painting research, I was instantly taken by his work. I am fascinated by his subject matter and the way he chooses to render it.
I am now a confirmed fan of Bo Bartlett’s work. I could have posted dozens of images they are all so compelling.
I will post one last one and then leave you with the link to his website where you can trawl at your leisure
P.S. it also helps if the artist is quite gorgeous…………is that a bit shallow?
