"Into the Wild - The Bull Rider," 16 by 20 inches - Tom Russell
Acrylic paint on canvas (stretched)
Tom Russell, the internationally acclaimed songwriter, has been painting professionally since 2003. His work was first featured on his record covers, until the demand from music and art fans prompted Russell to offer his art for sale in galleries. His paintings now hang in private collections, five star restaurants, hotels and music venues around the world.
This man is not simply a singer/songwriter who also paints, but a driven artist who does not allow his creative energy to be governed by the marketplace or defined, labeled and categorized for the convenience of others.
