Among the Quakies by Dwayne Brech, Original Oil

(Item: AMONG THE QUAKIES)

Among the Quakies by Dwayne Brech.  

This original oil painting is painted by artist, Dwayne Brech.  Dwayne moved to Colorado Springs in 1971 to work at Western Horseman Magazine as illustrator/art director.  After a fulfilling 27 year career he left the magazine to devote his time and energy to painting.  His art is recognized beyond the pages of WH in varios exhibits, galleries and private collections.  In 1998 he had the privilege of being one of three judges for the annual Cowboy Artists of America show.

The experience at the magazine provided invaluable material for his paintings.  Interaction with horsemen of every influence from ameteur to professional has allowed him to thoroughly research the horse world.  He enjoyes pack trips, trail rides, visiting ranches...and though not a "cowboy", he has a passion for portraying the cowboy life and life in the West.  He also enjoys painting wildlife and landscapes.  "My goal is to present these subjects accurately, and with emotion and to provide my collectors with more than value... a work of art they can 'live' with."

 

One of the most positive forces in Dwayne's work has been his devotion to painting on location.  "Art instruction provides the fundamentals necessary for an artist to make judgements regarding his approach and technique.  Beyond that, it takes getting outdoors to observe color, lighting conditions and atmosphere.  The mood present at the scene becomes the heart of the finished piece.

 

The painting is 12 x 16 inches.  The frame is 20 x 24 inches.
