Jeremy is currently a studio artist and candidate for a PhD in Sculpture at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.
Breathtakingly Beautiful.....your little brother guided me to your site. Thank you for sharing your art,your craft, and the love of stones...Mother Nature :o)
Excited to visit your gallery in Santa Fe
This piece is just spectacular. . .brilliant in every detail.
This takes me back to NM & Santa Fe and many beautiful memories of days spent there. . . the calm and clarity of the river reflecting the beautiful yellow of the trees against the earth. I admire your restraint in tamping down the turquoise blue of the NM sky, letting the yellow \"sing\" WOW!
I saw the painting at the Whitney in Cody, Wyoming and it\'s stunning! (So is the Whitney.) The painting is a masterful send-up of the sad, superficial veneer obscuring the real wonder we have all around us in this blessed world. Any plan to make prints available?
I have no words, because they would detract from the power of this piece. I am in awe.
Really fascinating. This alone was like a school day, learned a lot. I enjoy the strength with of your characters with some major emphasis on powerful hands. Beautiful.
What torment and anguish. Fabulous rendition of a beloved traditional character in media from a story.
Your awesome buddy.
Ben,Hello - my sisters and I were in Santa Fe and we saw your paintings in the Blue Rain Gallery; I can\'t tell you in words how much I loved your work! Please post these beautiful images online! Bless you, and continue your inspired work,Karis
I love all of her art. It touch my heart. Thank you for the eye candy.
This artist is fantastic. He is a gifted person, and comes from a long line of artists, Hopi-Tewa. Cool to hang out with him today. We call his brother rambunctious.
Norma, I love your paintings. Would love to have at least one.So very talented. Love your work,
I truly miss the spectacle of a downpour on the CO Plateau, though I do NOT miss the frightening lightning.
Truly exceptional work here.
Your work is beautiful - so complex and simply intriguing. So wish I had the kind of money to afford one of your pieces - at least I can look at your art online and dream.
As a micaceous clay artist myself, Yellowbird\'s work is breathtaking. The pieces are very difficult to achieve both in the fabrication and the firing, to say nothing about the beauty of the form which so beautifully fits the marriage between the imminent and the transcendent. Well done Blue Rain for acquiring this master potter.
I\'ve seen most of the high-level collage work out there, but this really is the most beautiful, powerfull, and technically superior portraiture I\'ve seen yet...looking forward to your upcoming exhibition!
A friend from Santa Fe recently sent me some of your images from an exhibition and I love your work! I too immediately thought of Thomas Hart Benton as well!! Hoping to see some in person in the fall. Fabulous work...Thank you.
C\'est un travail MAGNIFIQUE !
Sus obras son un encanto para nosotros. Ellos instigan nuestro razonamiento, son fascinantes e inspiradoras. A pesar de fuertes en sus líneas, muestran los rasgos femeninos de su autor. Enhorabuena.Saludos desde Sao Paulo, Brasil.
they all are beautiful and significant. Do you have another framed art as this one and how much are they?
Beautiful piece of Art
Your art works are fantastic - very striking! I will visit the Blue Rain Gallery soon.
So evocative of the British Columbia / Alaska coast.
Luminous masterpiece, thanks for exhibiting.
I adore this sketch. I love the life that Jim brings with his colors, but it is great fun to imagine them as well with a sketch like this.
Your art has so much \"soul\" in the deepest sense of that word. It speaks to the human spirit and to the things that make us more human and more spiritual. Thank you.
HELLO UNCLE TOMMY IM VERY PROUD TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL HAPPILY MARRIED MALE TO SHOW HIS GRATITUDE AND HARDWORK.

Love the work uncle. You are one true talented artist, proud to call you uncle. Hope all is well..much love! :)
I am writing a paper on you right now and your pieces shock me every time I look at them! You are an amazing artist and your work is so inspiring, it combines traditional Native and modern art together into a wonderful combination of elegant and inspired work.
Love your work. Friday visiting New Mexico for first time. Hope to see your work in person.
Lorenzo is a very talented artist and a wonderful teacher as well. He paints and describes the Southwest as well as any living artist today.
you are a very talented arist,this is so beautiful!!!the expression on her face is so soft and warm.beautiful horse and background just awsome!!!
Lorenzo is a prince of a guy. A solid artist he is always on the move.Good at branding and business.
Hey sister, your work is incredible just like you!Love ya!
Beautiful Show to Welcome Spring 2013. Each new artist, each contemporary Native American artisan, has shared part of their history and passion for life. Congratulations to Holly Wilson for sharing this wonderful collection. We are thrilled to be the proud owner of Keeper of Sorrows with suspended thoughts and hopes for a long life.
I am totally in love with this Lorenzo
These paintings jump off the page and into our memory of fabrics of our past.Thank you
I love Susan\'s work. Her imagination and painting skill is off the charts ! Great inspiration.
I just found a beautiful print by you, Tony Abeyta - and it is called Return to Red Mesa. It is so riviting to me - can you tell me something about the painting?
that\'s some nice art by my pops
Awesome! Lots of work went into it and such color and detail.
Beautiful! Love the design.
Love this picture. I\'m very glad you chose this artist and can hardly wait to see what else she\'s painting. Thank you.
Great work of ART.We can do without No More Tears Hair.[What\'s with the black halo?]Vicente
Interesting Concept of La Immaculada Concepcion. Not sure where was he going with this.V
Jim, your work is so exciting... Those powerful characters and their powerful hands WOW. Your work is truly impressive ....and those frames. they add to the beauty.We met on set of \"Cowboys & Aliens\" All The Best
Tony is a prolific artist, I love his unique style
Your work touches my soul, as it always has. It is truly magnificent in the way it often portrays a slice of life unknown to most but veryfamiliar. And Christen\'s tin work is beautiful, and perfect in itscompliment to yours. Just as it should be...love to S, and G, and M, and of course to you both.
I just love Jody\'s pottery! They are all special. So hard to choose the one for my collection.
You are inspiration to me as an up and coming artist. I love your work
soooo beautiful- some of the lovliest pots i have seen
\"Interesting use of various materials: captured my heart, don\'t believe I have seen another peice like that in my lifetime\". kudo to you!
Some day I\'m going to have one of these. It\'s hard to choose. Love \'em all! Visited the studio in WA once and had a great time.
Tammy referred me to your FB page Very nice. Friend me if you like Thanks
Highly recommended.A year ago, I acquired a set of the above bas-relief edition. It fascinates me today the same way as it did when I first saw it. I hung it initially in a row of 4 as in the above picture, but recently separated it 2x2 right and left of an open doorway. In both configurations, the pieces communicate strongly with each other. There is a perfect formal balance in each of the pieces and in their entirety. The serene abstraction of the old Navajo symbols is to be admired equally as is the masterly execution of the bronze casting and its patination – it makes the reliefs react very individually to light and gives them gloss as well as deep hues. A great work of art, not only one of Tammy’s best. I’m sure old Margret Tafoya would have loved, admired and commended it – not less than I do.
Great work Tony
Have loved owning \"Wish\". It brings me so much pleasure every day. So happy to have the Brenau connection with Roseta.
Absolutely breathtaking . . .
She is my great leader! She is my way to freedom!
A beautiful man...creating beautiful art..i smile with happiness for you
bruce..hope to see you soon.
Very nice to see one of my mother\'s piece.
Intriguing art work.
I love that Zuni Bear!
These are unbelievably fabulous!! I\'ve never seen anything like them! Amazing beauty, form, endless creativity! I love looking at them, and I would definitely want to own some if I could. But alas, some of us only dream!
Hey Everyone, I am Lowell\'s grandchild and I like looking at his work on google. I don\'t really remember any of his carvings but i would like to see one of them. When he passed i was really really young and at that time your a kid and don\'t pay attention to things. But now i really miss my grandpa and i want to see him everyday . I can still remember him carving at times, and putting a lot of detail in his carvings. We all miss him!!
Beautiful work Tammy
LOVE THIS ARTIST !!! SUCH BEAUTIFUL WORK !!!
A wonderful image to see the wings stretch outside the wooden branch shape\'s natural boundaries. It\'s great how the figure emerges from the branch, with one leg yet to be pulled up. Lot\'s of action and life.
Really fun. A great spirit about this. Simple yet evocative.
You take me back to my childhood days of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. The only difference being that your creations are light years beyond what we saw in 1955. With your wonderful objects we become kids again traveling to a distant star. As a docent at MONA I had a lot of fun pointing out your pieces in a recent exhibit there.
Dewayne - it is wonderful to hear, however brief, your story about watching your father carve. We have a beautiful kachina that we purchased at a gallery in Sante Fe about 16 years ago, and I\'ve always felt that his spirit is present in this one. Like you, I cannot ever get over the incredible detail.
You do awesome work, i enjoyed looking at it. thanks for sharing your creative work.
Tammy, this piece speaks to me, priceless!
Gorgeous! Would love to see this piece in person.
Doug continues to develop his stunning new style and every new canvas is a delight!
I love this bowl, it\'s stunning with the reflection highlighting the design.
i enjoy looking at nice Art work and yours is at the top, love looking at warrior type Art and beautiful Native women i have a couple by P OR T Cross signs first letter with a fish symbol..
beaitifully done. please os this earthenware.? and fired in electric kiln?
Preston:I love your work, it is imaginative, creative, stunning. I love the Swan Effigy and the earlier, now sold, Whale Effigy. All totally unique and charming. Continued success to you. Thanks for posting your work online also, it opens our world exponentially. God Bless..............Leah
I have a art calendar with stories from 1997 and treasure it very much. Are there any updated calendars to be had that are as recent as 2012? Very touching and very detailed art.
Tammy this is wonderful I have shared on my Facebook pageyou seem to do it all,
Call it Scales........
It\'s like a modern day version of Genie in a Bottle
Just a great piece of Art
Your work is immaculante,,,,,,,,,,,,,rock on
David\'s work is outstanding. It is very clear that he is paying attention to the world around him - - - how people affect their surroundings and how they in turn are affected by what is whirling around them. Clever, fun, great social commentary. I \"wowed\" and smiled as I viewed David\'s works of art.
This is beautiful ...:-)
hi . artist .good painting
Mary, Thanks so much for sharing your story about \"Time & Space\". Of course artists enjoy knowing when their work has found a special home because it speaks to the collector in some indefinable, personal way. Your comment about seeing a special moment and relating to my art is gratifying. Such times are often the inspiration for me to begin a new creation. I highly value observing the unfolding beauty of our world... our experiences in nature we all prize while transiting time. It is my special joy communicating these visions through my work. Thanks again for sharing with me.All the best,Doug
My husband and I first fell in love with your work when we visited your gallery in Socorro, NM in 2001. My husband was particularly enamored by your serigraph \"Time and Space.\" Being a young, newly married couple, we couldn\'t afford it, but my husband never forgot that image. Fast forward 10 years: For our anniversary, I decided to see if I could find Time and Space even though it had been sold out for some time. Through an online search, I had the amazing good fortune of finding an unframed serigraph at a gallery in Albuquerque. I contacted the gallery as was told it had some minor damage, but that it was corrected/repaired by you personally. I said I\'d drive up from Socorro the next day. I looked at the serigraph, but for the life of me, I couldn\'t see where the damage and/or repair was. Long story short, I bought it, had it professionally framed by Todd in Socorro, and gave it to my husband. He was beside himself, and to this day, it is one of our most prized possessions, and we never tire of looking at it. I just thought I\'d share this story with you so you would understand just how much your work and vision are appreciated. P.S. I\'m living in AZ now, but there have been and are so many days when I look at the sky and the clouds and the light and say to myself, \"That\'s a Doug West painting waiting to happen.\"
Some of the most beautiful and interesting objects d\'art I\'ve ever seen!
Best work yet!!!
To say this is \'Wonderful Art to Behold\' is to categorically deny the True Aspect of Where to place (a) Comment here, that would Honor You!... Preston. The Art World should crave Your indulgence of Rare Spirit Expressed Art Form. (The Image of the Raven and the Sun) is and always shall be...indelibly imprinted in my memory; always!
Exquisite pairing of materials each highlighted in its best form.
I have recently purchased THE most beautiful little seed jar originally created and sold by Tammy almost 19 years ago. Thank you LeRoy for having it stashed away there at your incredible gallery-- it was my lucky day! All my very best to everyone at Blue Rain Gallery--you\'re the best!
You obviously have studied with the Martians, the Venutians and the Romans. !!!! Love them all Rik!
Words can\'t express how lucky I feel to be the new proud owner of the \"Picasso\" inspired pot!! I\'ll treasure it! Thanks for being the most creative artist on the planet!!!
Absolutely love this!! Make some more. Did not make it to Santa Fe this time; on our way to France.
beautifulllllllllllllllllll! how $
WOW!!! have a similar design in 22 carat gold..nice
THE ARTWORK OF MR.B.LATVEN IS AMAZING,INNOVATIVE AND BEAUTIFUL. I AM A FANS OF MR.LATVEN
I used to come to Indian Market every year - until I retired. Love your Blue Rain Gallery in both Santa Fe AND Taos.
THIS JEWELS ARE AS FINE AS I HAVE EVER SEEN AND I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING SINCE THE 50S MAGNIFIQUE
Gracias por pintar a nuestras hermanas< gracias por no permitir que se pierdan en la nada, que se pierdan en el desierto nuevamente, como vuelven los desaparecidas? recordandolas...
What a great piece of art.
Jo Ann, Thanks so much for your comments. I never tire of hearing such feedback. It is an unexpected result of so many years creating images of NM and the Southwest... and it surely is an honor for me to be thought of when an inspirational moment unfolds in this beautiful terrain.All the best-Doug
I love this sculpture-the colors striking and it\'s unusual which makes it stand out. I love this piece.
Randy , Especially love ,\"Passing Storms\". \"Mystic River\" .and \"Lightness of Being \' , from the ones the website...have a Wonderful Show !!! Best , Ann
WOW...I am a semi retired art and ceramic sculpture teacher, and I am in awe of your work, and the thought behind each piece. I prefer SW style work myself. Keep up the good work.
Victor, you\'ve outdone yourself on this Madonna! Can\'t tell you how MUCH I love it!!!Penny
I am amazed at your work. First it was your picture on the cover of a magazine and I wondered who it was. Then I searched you on the web and your art is FANTASTIC. I\'ve never seen anything like it! I\"m an artist myself-an amateur one-but I would love 2 B as good as U! You are so Gifted!
There was a Rachel Nampeyo that was my babysitter when i was a child in Polocca. Any relation? I vividly remembering her taking me out to find clay and also finding geodes. I\'ll never forget her(your?) kindness.
The soul of the Southwest radiates from your paintings..incredible!!!
I know she is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside from Aunt DiDi
In Dixon and throughout New Mexico we are fortunate to have many fine painters and artists, from many disciplines. Jim Vogel captures the magic of life and culture in NM and the Southwest, like no other! His paintings truly move me and I find myself joyful and intrigued whenever viewing, his masterful work.
I own a Joe Ben Jr. sandpainting from over 25 years ago. He titled it \"Yei Be Chai\". It still memerizies me.
Absolutely beautiful and stunning!
Love the color and texture !!!!
Really neat !!!!
...and I wanted to add, I like the proportions... the placement of the smooth silver, which channels the busy-ness of the multiple strands into a single strong strand of stones. And the clear red ruby is like the meditative expression or eye, to remind us to be clear, strong, and fully alive. Thank you!
This is so pretty! The colors are so strong. I like the long smoothness of the coral and the stark veining of the turquoise. Red coral represents passion and the blood of life (origins from the sea.) Turquoise is a healing stone!
Futuristic and Uniquely interesting!
Bless my soul! This is a knock-out piece!
I\'m a birder and the loon is on the top of my list of favorite birds. This piece is wonderful.
I cannot put into words my admiration. Your work is so moving. I saw your exhibit at the Tacoma glass museum a few years ago. I am generally not a fan of glass art. But, my mother-in-law is and loves Chihuly. So, we went to the museum when she visited and they had to drag me away from your exhibit. When I think of it now it brings tears to my eyes. I wanted to set up a bed and live there amongst your work. Thank you for making me appreciate glass work like I never thought I would. I look forward to seeing it again one day. I have never dreamed of owning something so beautiful but now I hope one day I can. My best wishes to you. May you be blessed with continued inspiration. You are a gift.
I love the many textures and media and the very modern American Vishnu...
i miss my cousin and bestfriend so much. we still have hopes to see her one day
I have been a fan of Abeyta\'s for several years now - I have 2 of his prints - \'Ancients Remembered\' and \'Singing Yeis - I have traveled to New Mexico on several occasions and believe I with my youngest daughter, her son and a great grandson will be back in Santa Fe near Christmas - I think the name \'Blue Rain\' is a lovely name for an art gallery.. Ann M, Lee
This work is inspiring, it\'s fantastic Niawen, Billy
I used to know someone with the same name as you and he was just as talented as you are.I once had a priviledge of seeing some of his graffiti work just as marvelous as your paintings. You are richly blessed,Ben.
David Bradley expresses Indian life with humor and intense honesty. He is an exceptional artist...the Indian Norman Rockwell.
Me encanta ...ademas tiene un Ukelele echo de una caja de abanos...maravillosa tu pintura.
KNEW HIS PARENTS...AND FAMILY. GOOD PEOPLE
Norma is my aunt and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the wonderful comments.
As someone who has spent a good part of life around horses, cowboys and the west, I am incredibly moved by your work. Your horse is coming unglued and the rider seems right at home. The look of the horse\'s main, tail, hip joints all seem to show the beauty in his ride as well as showing really neat movement. What a wonderful work with the colors you used. I have loved your work since the first piece I saw, and now this is just great. It seems to some folks that it\'s a moral issue to introduce changes or new looks to the characters that make up the west, however it\'s done. It\'s not an attitude I have much empathy for, and with No Fear, you have shown the fallacy in that mindset for more eloquently than I could with a thousand words. What a great piece!
exquisite carved redware avanyu
Very creative, artwork looks like an avanyu.
Hi Jim,I am a mexican student and I am studying English language in Toluca city which is near to Mexico city.Is a great honour for me to show your creation in my English practice.I want to tell you, was a wonderfoul idea to paint about The Chili Line.I saw a video on youtube about the Chili Line, and I felt a lot of emotion when my brain taught in these area and how people were travelling by train at this time.Love your work.
Thanks for sharing the information. That’s a awesome article you posted
HOW PRETTY YOUR JEWLES ARE SO KOOL
The work is wholesome, and strong... I am saving up for a bracelet.
Amazing work... These paintings seem to contain air, and feeling...
I love this work. It reminds me of succeeding generations of men and women, moving through life, to a similar patterns and rhythms.
Doug, as you know, we've been collecting your work since the 1980s and are fortunate to have acquired more than 30 serigraphs, etchings, and monotypes. We will always love those styles but are thrilled to see how the large oil-on-canvas pieces have enabled you to capture even more fully, and realistically, the vastness of the American Southwest -- both its land and its sky -- in a single painting. "The Knowing" may well be your most beautiful work ever. We could stand in front of it for hours, taking in its sweep, imagining the sounds and smells of that place, and wishing we could be transported there at that precise moment. Congratulations on your successful, masterful evolution into this medium.
Love the elephants!
Never a day goes by that I don't see a Doug west sky, or a doug west mountain or a Doug west landscape of grasses and sage, both inside and out thank you for the beauty of your work.
Hello Shelley, Congratulations!!! Your art is really spectacular. I enjoyed every piece. I feel fortunate to have known you since your beginnings. Thank you for keeping me in your list and best wishes for continued success and good health for you and Rik. claudettexo
An incredible collection.. Where Jules Verne meets Dr. Seuss!
Love your workI have a 1984 (Angel Fire) also 1983 (/kaffman graghics)You WOW me
Beautiful piece, great painter.
Take your time to look at these wonderful creations. If you just give them a glance you will miss the secrets that are inside. These are all fun, magical and a return to my childhood on new vehicles. Better that Buck Rogers of Flash gordon could have ever thought of. I wish I could buy the all.
Love, love, love Jim's art. And his wife's framing was icing on the cake. The pic's we loved were sold before we got there but will be on the lookout for new pic's in the future. Thank you for such an enjoyable show. And introduction to your gallery. We will be back.
Love your work. We see our local Dixenos in all of your characters. Chuck especially likes the blacksmith, you can feel the heat! Great show from both of you. I so love how the frames are a part of the image, they just work.
thats my dads carving! coolness
I admire your work - and this piece speaks to me as a photographer documenting the cultures of the borderlands - Gracias for the inspiration and your strong vision of the people and land I have grown to love behind the lens.
I am sure that Maria Martinez would love this piece, if she could see it. I know that I do. I find Preston's art incredibly inspiring, and am very impressed by this collaborative effort.Thank you both!
Strong and brilliant.
Great work, in vision, in execution. You've got it goin' on!
I have several of Norma's paintings. Two of them particularly tie in with my own family history. One is her as a child with her mother and grandmother making lye soap in a kettle over a fire; another picking wild blackberries with a storm and lightning in the distance. I did both these things with my mother. Saving my money to buy more!
Simply magic! Great artist among many fantastic native artists!
I love the textures on each one of these bracelets but at the same time they tell a complete story.
Tammy, it was great meeting you and your husband in Chicago!! I really enjoy your work... you have some beautiful and inspiring pieces. I received your book today, thank you again! Hope to see you guys again soon, please keep in touch
I am the son of lowell talashoma sr. and it is really nice to see my fathers work on this page. just seeing it brings me good memories . the memories i always cherish is sitting next to him watching him carve. almost all carvings that i see when he gets done with one, i always have to study it and look at all the detail he puts on his carvings. i always want to own one of his carvings, but he sells it before i ask him if i could keep one. i thank you for sharing and showing the work his done in his past. my father will always be missed.
Is there anything on the planet more beautiful. What is the asking price of this piece and "The Village Under the Water"?
Tony Abeyta's work is a rejuvenating departure from otherwise stagnant imagery. Breaks all common 'perceptions' of contemporary Native American artists involved with culturally relevant subject matter.
i am very proud of norma
Very beautiful art creations you make.
Hi! In santafe for girl weekend and saw your art in magazine!amazing ! Should have saved the art on scratch paper in highschool!! It would be worth money now. Will stop by gallery sometime.
I saw your art In Southwest art Years ago, This morning I remembered your name, and found you on this web site. That's how much your art impressed me. It is great too see your art!
Absolutely fabulous new fleet. Each one outstanding. Another masterful show Rik. Keep Rockin.
Beautiful as always..
Very well done--one of the better ones I've seen.
Mark, Thanks for checking out my new work and thanks for your feedback. Interpreting the open beauty of the Southwest continues to creatively expand my artistic horizons.
These are astounding and her work in Juarez is so brave and inspiring.These are beautiful works of art.I can't wait to see the show!
You are an amazing man as well as a great artist!
Absolutely stunning. I hear music when I look at this. There is absolutely a rhythm created by the trees and the horses gate.No one slings paint like Roseta!
Bird Ya Da man!.Your designs are sensual,modern and timeless. Thats a pretty tall order to achieve. Im saving for a piece!Cheers!
We met just briefly at a B&B in Zionsville, IN, at breakfast. I found you to be a fascinating person and have since discovered your art, which is equally as fascinating. I will be sure to stop in at your gallery on my next trip to Santa Fe. It would be a pleasure to run into you again.
As you know already, Rosetta, I am in awe of your painting ability. So glad to hear you are at "Best of the West" in Indianapolis. my son says you ate at his restaurant! Isn't he terrific? Please call.
Looks nice miss you grandma
Suas obras de Arte são maravilhosas. Sou apaixonada pelo seu trabalho.
This is inspiring work. The portraits of the girls from Juarez don't exploit their status as victims; they celebrate their potential for life. It makes their murders all the more poignant.
Mercy...man is this something!
Yes, Mr Smith, you are blessed with God's talent - absolutely stunning pottery that you create!
We Love It All Roseta, can't wait to see more....And of course you...
This is cool! I went to school with Stetson at Phoenix Indian School. Happy to hear he is still creating! Pamela MattzHoopa, California
Doug, I used to frame some of your art in the early 90's in Santa Fe, I have always loved basically every image you produce. Fantastic, keep it up!
This one really touches a sad part of me. If I could I would cry but numbness keeps me safe from it.
Beautiful light, softness and sensitivity -
Congratulations for your work, Brandon ... We see an evolution of references that explore new ways ... I thank you for inviting me to meet your space. And thanks to Blue Rain Gallery to support our friend:))
Roseta - Love this, you are so extremely talented. I am honored to know you and your work!
LouAnn (@ EF in Santa Fe)
This painting takes my breath away. It reminds me of my vacations to the southwest.
Amazing work Jim! I remember the Vogel storytelling you mentioned in your bio from the multi-family camping trips from years ago!
The movement in your lines... the motion... brings everything and everyone to life Jim. Thank you.
let that boy boogie woogie
How's it going Bruce! Seen your latest work, it's awesome! Hope your making us some money! lol ha! ha! Keep up the good work.
This is my favorite of them all ! No doubt fetches the highest price$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!! Rightfully so. The piece has such stunning beauty; flow; intricate compliment of precious stones in the beautiful 18k gold ring. Outstanding artistry!
PS Love, to Jeannie, of course, too! You are two of the finest people I know. I so appreciate your recent favor, and often promote your jewelry and Blure Rain when I wear the two pieces that I own. The "Invocation" gets incredible fire in the honey base Australian opal at varying times in my life.
My lapus of Lazzulie; 22k beads, and Austrailian fire opal beads with the Anamuca Austrailian Opal clasp I am going to wear now . Let "The Invocation" take a rest! Big hugs to you both.
Beautiful as usual. I am so very happy for you and Jeannie for all of your hard work. This is what a WEB SITE should look like.
Be thankful for the wonderfull people at Blue Rain Gallery. They have done a first rate professional job for you.
HER WORK IS IMPECCABLE! IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO OWN AND WEAR ONE OF HER STUNNING PIECES...
LOVE YOUR WORK. ROSETTA
This is just spectacular. MERCY!Th e colors and designs are off the charts!
Love this Artist, Wow!
I was impressed with the original design and use of color.
Wow. I've been a fan of Tammy's art for about nine years now, and it seems as if each new piece just gets more and more beautiful. My eyes and my heart are very happy.
I'm very fortunate to have known Norma since she started painting, years ago and have several original pieces. She is definitely a self taught artist......
Years ago I and my daughter Cindy enjoyed looking and buying your jewelry and fetishes at the Contway show in Great Falls. It is great to see you are doing so well. I love your work. Pat
Beautiful, as everything else she creates... It amkes one wish one was just a little bit more affluent
... one of the few, truly original American artists.
Roseta, you continue to inspire and awe us with your art.
Buffalo Man is conceptually fascinating. 2D-3D-4D or more. inspiring to me as an artist and art appreciator. WOW!!!
Shelley :Beautiful ! Regards, Chris
Rosita's work is wonderful!
You are a true visionist my friend of friends; the only one who sees through my eyes as if they were his own. Beautiful work Lavrio, beautiful
This piece reminds me so much of a smaller version I have that you titled "Matters of the Heart". I so enjoy the pieces of yours that I have purchased. I still want a small jewelry piece of yours.Ken G-Mac
absolutely beautiful we love it
Surely a gift from GOD, this talent. Remarkable. A senior citizen artist from Mo.
long time. glad to see your fine art here. i hope you are well.
Brilliant and visionary with a spiritual power and authority that reflects both talent and giftedness.
This one is so real. Nice picture.
I will always be able to spot your paintings Jim. They are so unique
and each one is special. I just love them all. Thanks for putting these up so those of us that are far away are able to view your wonderful paintings. And the frame's are one of a kind also. You do a Great job painting your own style. I enjoy each one. Wish I could hear all the stories behind them.
Love this !!!
Dear Mr.RICHARD ZANE SMITH,you are the best poter.God must bless your hands,you are special poter God bless you.
How wonderful to see the playful, maturity your work has become!Best to you and the family....your old paper rep in Denver.
This is stunning....does that say "Queen"? ..
New work?...wow! Beautiful.
Wow...this is outstanding ....love.
Love Jim Vogel!
Monet Lives! (And has never looked better.)
I was thinking whatever happened to my pal from school days. We both lived in Viro. I googled you and there you were. If you remember you used to draw alot of stuff for me and I used to tell you that you were going to be famous. You would laugh and say you're so crazy!! It is so wonderful to see you, u look just the way I remember you!!
i enjoyed your website...keep up the good work!
To me this is a piece of work intended to inspire us all to fulfill our dreams. Who could believe that a dog could pilot a plane, but often the impossible is achievable and this is often shown to us in life. The message that I also gain is the pride of the dog in doing what it is doing and at day's end is the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow that is the reward for perservering and belief that the seemingly impossible well may be possible. A true inspiration to us all.
I find this painting so incredibly moving. To me it is symbolic of thr resting place of Douglas Kent Hall. All that remains of his wordly life is his shirt that he may have worn during his passing. It is symbolic that we go out of this world with nothing but what we wear at the end. The dogs are lost without their master and best friend. The dog lying across the grave weeps at the loss while the standing dog stares in anxiousness and bewilderment seeking his master. The peacock maintains its regal stance but is with the dogs to share the grief. A beautifully expressive and thought provoking painting.
Your work is stunning and incedibly imaginative and has a unique meaning and emotional connection for each viewer. Joshua, I would very much like to know what motivates you to create such works and what your personal interpretation is behind them. What sparked you to do this piece of work? What mesage do you wish to convey?
Joshua I find your paintings are stunning and thought provoking. They tell a unique story to every viewer through their experiential backgroung and emotional past experiences. I would very much like to know the inspiration that inspires you to create such original and rivetting pirces of art with strong messages and raw emotion
Artist captured your spirit -- Bro, You're incredible!!
Your work is beautiful. So young to start off a wonderful career. Do you make the hands from leather,they amaze me. The look soooo real. Your bead work is impeccable!
Lovely piece. Similar to the Quapaws symbol for rain clouds or a more modern version on rainbows symbolizing hope. Maybe God was telling him "make symbols of hope for all our men fighting for our freedom."
This piece is perfect for my husband's 70th birthday... reminding him to slow down and take life easy. You only have so many heartbeats! This small piece is spectacular in form, color and creativity. This whimisical bronze turtle is flawless in every way. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
Tony The cloud depiction in the thunderstorm just blows me away. Incredible power emanates from this canvas.
What a beautiful picture! The detail is amazing, and that model is HOT!
She never fails to amaze me . Thanks from an artist . don greywolf
A beauty, with some of your trademark colors.
What a view!
Very nice piece
Mr. Vogel's work has at once a sur-reality as well as a story. His paintings are very beautifully conceived using the vernacular.
It is like looking at a young William Morris, great job, keep the work fresh. What are the prices?
arthur holmes jr and his dad has always been one of my inspiration ever since i started carving while in junior high i always thought of becoming a great artist such as them and now i think i am
I love these buds. I want to see them on my altar, greeting each day and saying good night.I want to cherish them.But I have their photograph, and I will give that to the altar, and all will be well.
The strong colors and striking pattern almost makes you forget to see the meticulous rolled clay underneath.Most beautiful. I love the way the pattern comes to such a neat and perfect end just under the lip.
This is so STRONG!The strapping is bone and the ligaments (?) holding the joint together. Mind blowing.And underneath the quiet bowl, holds it handles like the quiet sky holds the earth.This is wonderful Richard.
it is adan, i am building a oratorio en honor del Santo Nino de Atocha, i like this piece, see it has been sold.
Powerful work, vibrant colors. I am stunned, wish I could see this in person. I certainly feel the spirit of it.
Roseta's paintings are so compelling. This is an exquisite piece.
This is outstanding work. Great color areas with a well balenced design.
In the legacy of the Vigils, this is a new direction! Move forward with exceptional arts that transform Indian Art into the 21st Century.
Mr. Conrad Bobiwash
School Principal and Designer
really like this book((a friend got at the santa fe, exhibition)! and the work erin currier! wish i had gotten to see the exhibition! thank you for inspiration and beauty...
Blue Rain Gallery has some creative art work in a number of mediums. Check out Roger Suetopka's Kokopelli.
Beautiful & symbolic
Beautiful braclet. The artist should be proud.
The beauty of your pieces are stunning.I find the perfection of the (false) baskets so beautiful that it is difficult to believe they can be clay.Thank you for telling me to search for your name in Google. I would have hated missing your beautiful work.I look forward to finding more of your work via Google.Yours sincerelySalome
This is a fantastic drawing. I am from New Mexico in the four corners. It is neat to see the old and modern aspects of the Native American man. I love the traditional dress, modern pants and the corn pollen bag. The details, is as usual unbelievable! Hyrum, your artistic ability continues to amaze me. In college you amazed me but it just keeps getting better. I love the charcoal!
Love the colors and composition of this one!From you last name I take it you have are Dutch, Belgian or German descent? (I'm Dutch)
its nice / amazing
i like ur birdy ;)
i just purchased a print of the "bufallo shield", you are a great artist and native american spirits will live on forever through your work! thank you!!!
Awesome stuff! Curl up w/this and a Robert Heinlein book by the plasma fire in the fireplace!
Roseta Santiago's paintings are stunningly beautiful, thought provoking and masterly in their technique.
Just wow i really love your work it made me take classes im not as good as you but i found a new talent ^_^
Dear Doug ,
I just bought Stellar Bloom for my wife for a Christmas present. We are flatlanders from Illinois who love the colors of the earth and sky of New Mexico. I marvel at the way you have captured them, then have unselfishly released them for us to enjoy day after day.
I love the spirit of cedar, with the wood colored glass suspended inside the more opaque layer. the work of a master. there is no one who would not be improved by attending a preston singletary exhibit. thanks for improving us all.
That's beautiful... I was a good friend of Donna's, the design reminds me so much of her...
You continue to amaze me! I so treasure the Tony pieces that I have collected over the years. When people visit they are amazed that these pieces are from one artist. Always elevating your art to a new level -- and now jewelry. Isn't it time for another retrospective?
Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realized that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality. John LennonI like this quote.God bless you Mr. Franco!
wonderful, I have been transported to theearly 60's, sans zip up Flash Gordon space suits.great humor and wit thanks!
Good technique and wonderful expression. Leaves a lot to comtemplate for those looking.
Super duper! This piece is even more amazing in person!
MM, Many thanks. Well yes... you did discover my work at the 1978 Armory show. It was my first public showing. At the time I was working a full time job but was compelled to be creative by producing art at home in the evening. Just after the Armory show I started showing in a Santa Fe gallery, and shortly after quit the full time job to focus on my art. That was over 30 years ago. I continue to love interpreting the beauty I see here in NM, and out there in the world at large.
Powerful painting and astute commentary.
all i can say is WOW! a very moving and provocative piece!
It reminds me of all the many times dad and I would find old, abandoned houses and look through their old trash piles.
Norma is my aunt and I know her work as well as anyone. This is one of her best that I've seen in recent years.
Had the pleasure of meeting Hyrum Joe while in Santa Fe around the 17th of August 2010 while he was completing a wonderful trading post painting. His work is delightfully historic, telling a wonderful story with great artistic skill. He noted that E Foutz had helped his father at the Shiprock Trading Post as he began his creation of his wonderful, prize winning works. A young man with great skill & soul.
just stunning, what other words can i say..
We are so happy to know you and look forward to having your painting in our living room. Pancake breakfast again anytime you can make it !
I've always loved "Old Man Jeff"And now you give us "Eyes of Wisdom". Great work Marla !
So glad to see your paintints at Blue Rain. I almost feel I "discovered" you, since I first saw one of your paintings/prints at an Armory show in Santa Fe in the 1970s, and commented, "This artist is going to make it!" I have two of your works and never tire of that fantastic sky.
HE continues to amaze me, awesome!
like nothing else!
Beautiful work Mr Singletary. I've spent some time in the PacNW, seen some of the totems these works are similar to. absolutely wonderful pieces sir, keep it up :)
Love this. A revival of ledger art!
Me encanto ! ! !
Could you tell me how much this lovely pot sold for and would itbe about the same price in black? Beautiful site!
looks like cave painting,love the earthy reds
So vivid, emotional, exquist, lively and colorful.
OUT OF MY SIX CHILDREN, TWO ARE VERY TALENTED ARTISTICALLY. (AGES 17 & 15)
WE ALL CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR GALLERY WHEN WE VISIT SANTA FE NEXT WEEK - YOUR TALENT IS VERY INSPIRING FOR OLD "WANT-TO-BE ARTISTS" LIKE MYSELF, AND MY UP & COMING ARTIST DAUGHTERS -
IT'S INSPIRING FOR THEM TO SEE A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY LIKE TAMMY GARCIA LET HER BEAUTY POUR OUT HER FINGER TIPS AND INTO WHATEVER SHE IS CREATING.
Fabulous 1hi Peter
I love Christina's work as well as Jim's work and did not pay attention until now that she is a Vigil.
Awesome work! Achukma!! Your gallery, Preston, and Marcus have done the world a great service in exhibiting this unique art that has roots in the rich heritage of SE Tribal peoples.
Your work is truely inspired. I'm especially taken with White Birch and Trufulla. May your giftedness continue.
This is amazing ..it has an almost agate translucence. Totems/tatoos are gorgeous
His work is awesome, in the literal sense of the word.
Wow. I love this image. Even with my poor resolution, the layers are so compelling.
...I see a lot of improvement and metamorphosis. Your art is going in the right direction ,not to mention the media and substance very impressive!!! It makes me happy that your artistic charge is bursting in so many directions..CONGRATULATION,Stanley
Love your work, David. This one is my favorite, but all are very nice!
is so coolhs
My favorite piece in Echoes Fire Shadows was the Eagle Transformation Mask--it was hung at eye level for me, and as I gazed at it, this white 58 year old woman glimpsed magic. Thank you.
Exceptional work. Balanced and calming with the memories of past images.
Mr.Abeyta, continues to re-make art with the positive and negative space usage within two dimensional space.
Hey Bruce-- hope all is well in your life. Say hi to Frankie B too.
I think your art work is exquisite. It's different from the Northern native art work. I'm a native american also and I find your art work very inspiring and interesting. You're a very purdy man by the way.
Tammie:Condolences on the loss of your grandmother. One great artist falls while another rises.
INSPIRING beautiful work
Hey stranger!!! How are you doing? I hope all is well with you and your children! Anyway, i was admiring your artwork and your picture on this page. Your artwork is creatively brilliant and your picture, well i would have to agree with the other ladies....you are still handsome as ever!
My favorite...This artwork is like reading a great book that you never want to end.
Reachs so deep into the soul, I can hardly bear to look.
Breathtaking, if I were a rich man.....
Wonderful, I like the contrasts...
I hope you don't mind that I love to reference your art into my paintings, which are meager indeed when compared to your beautiful artwork. You inspire this sixty-five year-old Pojoaque woman to start painting again when the woes of my world crash into my peace and my spirit is weak. Thank you.
Jim Your work is great some of the best work out in Santa Fe.you always put out a solid body of work.Keep up the good work look forward to seeing you at the show.Your the new school of good painters in New Mexico much respect god bless you and your familia.
Pahponee has long been one of my favorite clay artists. I absolutely adore her work, which is so beautiful and spiritual.
I love your paintings, Jim. Very inventive. And Kristin, I am really impressed by your frames too.
You are a phenomenal artist and great art teacherWe love and appreciate you!Dodie, Danielle and Tyler
Maple is a very dense wood, hard to carve. It dulls carving tools quickly. Maple carvings are uncommon. Here is an amazing example of one, and it takes full advantage of maple's ability to hold detail.
"Turned wood" does not begin to describe this. It is obviously made painstakingly from glued, segmented rings. But what of the textured, unpolished portion? The photograph does not reveal its attributes, but there is a tantalizing glimpse of striations on the far left.
I like this one, Richard.
I love it!
Saw your work at the Heard Museum, 2008. Curious if it was a sand period like Picaso had his Blue (joni mitchell too)
The choice of textures, shapes and color are vibrant and bold like the artist.
We absolutely love your work and find it to be such a welcome addition to our home. It contributes to the warmth and coziness that we feel on a daily basis. Our guest enjoy the same feelings when they see your work in our home. No other artists can capture the skies that we so love here in New Mexico. We always look forward to viewing your work, up close and personal, at the Blue Rain Gallery. They are so gracious and do a beautiful job representing your work.
This is a beautiful glass vessel. The subject matter is so life-like. The fish actually look like they are swimming. It is a fine representation of Tammy's artistic talent as well as Preston Singletary's. What a wonderful idea it was to collaborate with him. The talent between the two artist is phenomenal. My husband and I love the work Tammy creates, by herself as well as what she and Preston create together. .
i love the clouds and feel of he land. slightly reminiscent of maynord dixon. i hope louie is having fun in the happy hunting grounds.
very nice work
WOW Dad I sure miss you your the best<
LOVE THIS!!!! Tammy's innovation is unparalleled and is a true inspiration....
We have a similar painting (44"x59") acquired in 2003-04 and it remains our favorite of all our collection.
exquisite. and would love to see more work by this artist.
I knew Teresita when I was growing up in Los Alamos, NM. Her mother, Tina, came to our home once a week to clean. We became very close to Teresita and Tina. Our friendship lasted all of Teresita's life.
feels very relaxing and complete
Great art work, Now I finally have a great example of a contemporary artist to show my students when presenting one of my visual art weaving lessons.
I think this is gorgeous! Im not sure what about it I love, but this painting is like all of my favorite things put together! Can you tell me more about it?
Athur is my grandfather. He is a VERY talented person.
He is just amazing. i love spending time with him.
Writing a paper on you right now...just thought you'd like to know
tony strocho, ba dove stay?
Hi, I grew up in Taos with a Yellowbird Samora, I am wondering if you are the same Yellowbird? On a side note, love your pottery, very beautiful. Thanks,Poppi Monroe
visual music, the pots are whistling a duet!
a carnival of organic colors and shapes uniting land and sea!
I visited the Echo, Fire and Shadow exhibit at the Tacoma Glass Museum and was moved beyond words to see such a respectful nod to tradition in a new and exciting way. If you can't afford the art, buy the book.
Beautiful lines and great character.......very interesting presentation of the subject matter.
you are a very good artist n i really like u'r work! keep it up dude!
Your talent is God's gift to you.You are the best!!!!Thank you for sharing.
unbelievable artistry. exquisite.
Hey Bruce - Your work is beautiful!!! God Bless - Marianne
Comment:I have been enjoying your works which have been featured in S/W Art mag.and Western Art Collector mag.I began painting seriously seven years ago and am enjoying depicting day of the dead as well as retablo themes.I look forward to viewing more of your work. Thank you, John
dude your work is so friggin awesome!!!
All of your artwork is amazing. Keep it up!
It's "Sand Blossom" (for web#1856) by Susan Folwell. Another beautiiful gift from this unusually gifted and talented artist. And as always the more times you look at it, the more you see and feel. .
Your art is so beautiful, and I am very proud to be the owner of one of your bronze sculptures that I bought last year in Santa Fé. It's a joy to discover your new creations on the internet. The Fox Charm is faboulous!
With best wishes to you from Switzerland, Barbara
what incredible talent, love the innovation and continuous push forward.
A soul touching image.
The sense of place that this painting suggests is so real. I can transport myself to New Mexico in one glance. The color is so clear and brilliant it gives me chills! It makes me happy.
What can I say? This is another stunning example of Grace Medicine Flower's superb artistry. Exquisite is an understatement. New Mexico and the U.S. are so fortunate to have her because she is truly a Living Treasure.
I just love it!!!!
Anna & Charlie, So good to hear your comments. You'd enjoy seeing these paintings I'm sure. I definitely remember painting the Rio Grande Gorge painting you collected. Best wishes to you!
THE STARK SIMPLICITY OF THIS PIECE DRAWS YOU TO IT.
love this pendant
Takes you right there! There should be a monograph on this guy!
Beautiful . artists like yourself bring me back to Santa Fe year after year .
Tell him he is insanely good.He takes my breathe away
The only word I find upon my lips is "Amazing." No other artist of your craft can match the harmonic balance that resonates between the pieces of each whole. Lavrio is a master alchemist and has no other to rival his art and craft. It is my honor to wear his work.
Saw one of the pieces in a June ad in American Art Collector and was immediately drawn to it. Unfortunate family matters caused a lapse in persuing information about it further, until last night. I somehow had a vision of the painting and could not remember which magazine or month I had seen the painting. After pouring through about 20 magazines issues over the last 4 months I located the right month and magazine. What is it they say about things that are meant to be. Don't know what will be the outcome, just wanted to say that when a piece of art speaks to one's heart and spirit, it truly does.
Your oils are breathtaking!
We haven't been in New Mexico since we had dinner with you several years ago, but are itching to get back. Would love to see your new work in person! The oil you did for us is still one of our favorites.
Still love the "Doug West Skies"!
Anna and Charlie
Your artwork is absoloutly, positively wonderful! You're very cute too! Are you married? Oh, wait a minute....I am. Ooooops!
Absoloutly stunning use of color! Incredible!
i would like to know if les went to school in west jordan, ut
I am absolutely blown away by the incredible designs of Maria Samora. I stumbled across an article about her and have gone online to see her jewelry and read more about her. I can't wait to make a visit to Santa Fe and visit the gallery so I can see her jewelry up close. I hope to someday own one of her exquisite pieces.Roberta IacinoEagle, CO
Your work is awe inspiring, I have the good fortune to own one of your large paintings of Taos Pueblo, which I have visited many times, the lovely pastels with the dark underpainting gives the depth of being there on my old adobe wall. I appreciate your attention to detail translated by your careful eye. I also paint and write poems to go with and truely appreciate the energy that goes into your work. Thank you! Karen
Rey,Knowing that you have viewed this land your entire life and respond to my work means very much to me. My new show of paintings reflects my connection with what I love most about the Southwest- its clarity of light and vast dimensional space. Thanks for your positive comments.DW
David Bradley's work offers viewers a visually powerful, brilliantly detailed insight to the contemporary struggle of Native American peoples. The paintings are simply beautiful, the colors vibrant and light-filled, the images at once caustic, yet gentle, and caring. Bradley's intellect and palette are important to the art world and the social evolution of American life. Keep on truckin' Mr. B!
I HAVE BEEN AN ADMIRER OF HELEN HARDINS ART WORK FOR MANY YEARS BEING THAT I AM INFLUENCED BY HER PAINTINGS IN MY OWN WORK. I AM A RETIRED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER
Ben...you are blessed my brother! Magnificant paintings!! God Bless you friend...JR
THE Ultimate NEO-Contemporary-Aboriginal. Talk About the skill of Patience, What an Art!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Randy - what a glorious portrayal of william's lake!
Your a great artist keep up the good work.See u around brother peace.
Absolutely amazed by your show in Tacoma. The raven pieces especially powerful. Thank you! EVA
I love these works. Wonderful sense of depth that draws me in.
Congratulations on an amazing piece of Art.
If I am correct, I believe you showed me this braclet at the Heard Fair in 2007. It turned out great.
My husband and I saw this in the gallery in Santa Fe a few days ago. We saw many of your other pieces there as well and were dazzled and humbled to see the talent, skill and hard work that you infuse into every piece. We loved everything. Please continue to make more beautiful art for the world to discover and enjoy.
Bless Google, dear Sukey HughesI have always regretted not buying Washi with the paper samples when I lived in Santa Barbara. And I still have one of your Medicine Shirt prints under glass (on my desktop -- wooden desktop, not computer) and a returned card I sent to you, probably 20 years ago. Happy to see you are still doing work with paper. Me, too...paper and silk and sometimes poetry. But I sorta lost my way in Australia. I think/hope that is changing. All the best...come for a visit....Mary ByingtonM~
I love your art! I was in the gallery this weekend and I was blown away. I hope to one day have some of your beautiful artwork hanging in my house. Thank you for sharing your talent.
I am a native Santa Fean who has always had an intense appreciation for the beauty of New Mexico. It was in my early twenties that I first came into contact with Doug West's work. When I saw his images I was blown away -- the vision and beauty of his art resonated with my own visceral experiences of this landscape we call the Land of Enchantment. Since that time my love for his work has grown in ever increasing levels of appreciation.Thank you Doug for your inspiration and the beauty of your work.Most sincerely, Rey De Lupos
I was both inspired and awed by the depth and scope of his work. His visions and execution are far and away the most exciting I have ever seen .. Kudos
Just saw your exhibit at the Corning Rockwell Museum of Art. It is truly awesome and inspiring--I am in awe of one who can accomplish what you do with clay, glass or bronze.
We saw some of this jewelry at the Sandia casino and we enjoyed its beauty and creation. Who ever makes this jewelry is an expert silversmith and their web pages are great for selling the jewelry.
Saw a co-woker viewing jewelry, took a closer look and was wildly surprised, I knew the face! I did not know just how amazingly beautiful and unique your creations were. I was simply blown away. Congratulations on such talent.
this pottery is meravilhose .barabens.
Randy~It was wonderful knowing you when we went to CF, used to love teasing you about being your agent as I always believed you had a talent that would someday be shared by the world! Remember you staring at the Gargoyles my Father had brought back from France that were mounted in our family room. Wonderful to see the fantasy in some of your work is so reflective with the European, Old World feeling I love. Even more happy for you that you have fulfilled your dreams, have the same calm, thoughtful demeaner as you did when you were in your 20s. Thank you for sharing your gift with so many! Many blessings to you and yours........~Teri
Your designs are absolutely stunning!
These pieces really show landscape the way I see it....with color that sings and dances through your senses. Night Rain and Aspens in the Moonlight are fantastic in my view.
Recently we visited the WDC Womens Museum because we had heard your art was on exhibit there. I was so impressed by your talent and hard work produced from mother earth. Thank you...
the shadow. ..is the third figure in this painting. Or there's much to be talked about, re: that shadow.
hes a great artist and i hope he keeps producing more and more art
very,very nice! i enjoy viewing this piece!
I love this painting!!!!
I am particularly fascinated by your charcoal/mixed media paintings on paper. When viewing the above before reading the title I was thinking this is a creation story, creating order out of chaos. Very expressionistic and so immensely powerful. If I had this work in my possession I would never tire of looking at it and find new images to fascinate me all the time.
I am a BFA student and have to write an essay on postmodernism and curate (in my mind only) an exhibition of 5 artists and write a curator's essay 600-8-- words long. The above will be in my curated show. I could write 800 words just about your work only.
I wish you good luck and thousands and thousands of more creative hours so we, the public, can enjoy what you have created.
Im always so anxious to see what youve come up with. All of your paintings make me wish i were there.
Raven Steals the Moon is wonderful as is all Mr. Singletary's work. Going to the Blue Rain Gallery is one of the first things to do upon arriving in Taos. That and going to Mantes Chow Cart.
Tammy,Your work is spiritually moving.
Magnificent. .see you on FB Lorenza
i love the colours
This would also be amaizing on a larger scale. Does she ever do that?
I love Norma's work! I would love to know if she has this style on large canvas's. I think they would be amazing on a large scale.
I studied with you at the Taos Art Institute in 2002 and your class changed my art so much for the better. I have been wanting to tell you this for years. Forgive me for taking so long. You are an amazing artist and an amazing and generous teacher.
Joshua....I'm so taken by this painting also....beautiful!!
Joshua, I'm completely awestruck by this new paintings depth and beauty inspired by Douglas that you have painted!!!! He would feel so honored!!
Would love to sit down sometime with you and have you discuss it with me and to see it in person!!!
The presence of human analogs diminishes your power by distraction. The more you abstract, the more astonishing your work is, and it is definitely that. Magnificent!
This pic is really deep and freaky. Expertise in detail. It's like I am there. The fright rises in my heart as the horses rush towards the little child. Sorrow exzudes from the dogs eyes.
They are beautiful!!!!
This is so amazing; such a statement. Lucky for my pocketbook the red horse (Grenada) has sold.
Love it! Wonderful color.
I love this new painting Josh! I recall the frame too!
Wonderful sense of light with contrasting images and colors. The soft warm hues draw the viewer in to a warm and inviting scene. The title is intriguing as well!
Thank you for sharing your art pieces -- and that's what they are; not just jewelry, but also art. I really like combination of color and form (be it fluid, solid, solemn, mysterious, or lively), as complemented by each of their names. They all paint vivid pictures in my imagination -- brings me back to the wonderfully simple but strikingly organic movement in some Sesame Street's animation segments that I still remember to this day.
Richard,I like the small pots.
Wow. You're the artist I hope to become...all kinds of media, whichever one(s) fits the concept, that's what you use...wonderful work!!!
I aways knew Thomas would be a successful artist in one aspect or another, It brings me much joy to see you become such an aspiring artist,
We are fortunate to have an original Howard painting from a few years back. Seeing these makes us want more - especially the untitled work # 8152.
Her work brings to one's mind the simpler and more beautiful experiences in life and each piece speaks to you.
These are absolutly spiritual and beautiful.
Fantastic work, Jim! Congratulations!
I like this one... :)
i love you whats your clan? i just love the art work that u do!!!!it is amazing
mr.Tony Abeyta i love you u!!!!!
that was amazing!!! i loved it
i love this it is just gorgouse! omg seriously just totally keep it forever and ever!
you have extremely inspiring work thanks ma'am
my father is Wallace Nez Jr and being around art a lo makes me curious when i first saw this I loved it!
Norma must hav put alot of her heart and mind into this painting it is beautiful
i like this one i like how the painting has the color of an old antique picture.
Hi Uncle Larry... Your web site is MAARRVELOUS!!! love you!! Sarah
Looking at this makes me want to touch it...I can barely make out some sort of pattern...I know there are many patterns here and seeing them all would take time...love it, thanks.
I saw a few of Preston's pieces at the Chicago SOFA show and was blown away. These pieces were the high point of the show, a show with lots of glass artists. The satin black glass was so beautiful and perfect I wanted to carry one around.
nice image. I know you deleted the west side of las trampas chapel for the paintings sake and as the main focus is the woman with candle it is forgivable . you are truly one of the unique painters working in america today.
I love your paintings. They remind me a little of Thomas Hart Benton.
Doug I love your composition, its nice to know in a world of seven billion people there is someone else who shares my love of natures beauty from the same basic perspective I see and also enjoy the same basic colors i love .I hope one day we can meet in New Mexico and sit down and pick each others brain as well as paint a sunrise or sunset.....SteveP
Steve, Thanks for your positive comments. I love the colors that result from New Mexico's clear skies. The lIght... it truly is why so many artists are inspired by this place. I strive to bring a heightened sense of realism by adding detail to my paintings, while still retaining the unique signature that brushes produce applying oil to canvas. Best Regards, DW
what a beautiful creation.concratulations
I watched the video. Amazing!
I really would love to ge back in touch. I'm still in Colorado.
Mr. Abeyta! You are truly one of the most talented artists I have ever seen in our generation and I am truly blessed to have "grown" with you through the years! Not one creation of yours is considered "boring?" They are the most awesome, purest of the pure, creative energies I have ever felt when veiwing your work! You are such an inspirational artist! Thank the Great Spirit for You!!
I love your work Doug its fantastic I love your color & detail WOW
excellent art quality i love it
Hey Leah this is your Bestest friend eva
I really liked it see ya at skool!!!
The woman's expression captured by the colors and texture used in painting shows the depth of existence of a soul . I am not an expert in art, but have artist friends.Someday I hope to own one of your paintings. Your art is very real and captivating.
My favorite! I particularly like the movement of the storm.
These works are amazing!!!
Wow! Your work is beautiful. So glad we had a few wooden tools for you.
Hi Shelley, I enjoyed looking at your work. Nice stuff. Good people come from Manitoba like your Mom and Dad. Your Mom's brother is married to my twin sister Roxie.
I am a wood carver and carve funking boots from cast off wood.
Wishing you continued success, Roman
Every painting that has captured my attention has been by Randall LaGro. I truly LOVE his brush work, the compositions, the colors, the texture. It feels good to my soul! Thank You! I hope to come see his work in life shortly! A trip worth taking!
This piece is amazing! The detail blows my mind. Good job Richard.
My favourite piece of art in the world is Raven Steals the Moon, I saw this at a museum in Seattle & from that moment on I think about the beauty of this piece. One day.... Bridget
More photographic based psuedo-surrealism. How interesting. Dali would be amused.
Very inspiring to see the level of detail Tammy works in. I am relatively new to pottery. Faces speak to me and my pottery friends keep trying to get me to branch out from masks, but I hear the voices and must answer. I am not a detailed person, so to see the quality Tammy achieves is adding an inspiring push to move to a new level of work. Thank you for this lovely web site. To hear Tammy speak of her work is wonderful, and to hear the exploration never ends is fun to think about. I started art late in life so it is unrealistic to reach the level Tammy is at, but still, the connection is felt. It's never too late, we are never too old, because life is a gift to explore.
I've only "met" you through your videos, which I find myself searching for after seeing the "Underworldness" one at the Heard Museum. I'm deeply touched by your art in all its forms, but particularly the black and white. I dabble in many art forms (mostly weaving), but your work has actually inspired me to paint for the first time in my life. It's wonderful that you can talk with your audiences while creating such incredible stuff without missing a beat. Thank you for all your beautiful, inspiring work, and please come back to SOFA Chicago next year so I can come to see you!
I purchased her pottery in 1978 in Phoenix. Would like to learn more about her work.
Josh.......I remember that little blond headed kid wrestling at Mountainville with Tommy. You've come far, and your talent is outstanding. I see much of your mothers influnence in you work. I still have all the hand made birthday cards she sent me.
Stay Well Joshua.........Michael
Josh– I really like this image, and the size too. I see Dali all over the canvas.
This just might be my favorite.....it is beautiful! And it is sold.
Your work is amazing! So very proud of you!!!!
what does this painting mean? i am blown away by it. who is douglas kent hall and is that his shirt? great painting.
This is truly great style and flavoring.
Elegant flow....very beautiful. The color is soft yet the power of the animals create a bold feeling of action as if they are to leap out into space.

I am doing a project for art class, and your work is so new and innovative that I am doing it on you. God bless those hands of yours that put out this wondrous art!
Ms. Garcia, I'm doing a project on a modern artist, and I would like to know why you make the work that you do. I love it so much- it really strikes me and puts thoughts in my head.
WOW! Absolutely the most beautiful jewelry and the creativity is impeccable. I hope to own of one of these Native American beauties!
Comment:I saw my first piece of Preston Singletary glass at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA yesterday. It's an absolutely gorgeous raven. Mr. Singletary is an extraordinary artist--in a class by himself. It's my hope that he doesn't become as commercialized as Dale Chihuly. Each of his pieces has an individual presence. Again - breathtakingly beautiful. The most exciting art I have seen in a very long time. It made my heart sing!
This piece has a light hearted, yet elegant form. The use of color is very unusual, especilly for a glass form. Very unusual, very beautiful.
I looked at this painting a few days ago in Santa Fe and I believe it the most interesting and beautiful picture I have never seen. It looks like dreams that need to be explained to me.
PARABÉNS!!!! Sua criatividade, originalidade, visão de mundo interior é simplesmente, fantástica! Seu trabalho, além de belo e expressivo, encanta com suas formas lúdicas que levam à abstração do novo, do imaginário, bem como do real. Desculpe por escrever em português, mas se em minha própria língua não consigo expressar o que seu trabalho me desperta, certamente em inglês me seria impossível.
Abraços a quem entendo como verdadeiro ARTISTA!
Ohhh so BEAUTIFUL! With juxtaposition of complexity and simplicity your work tells a fantastic story. I so enjoy your work. It makes me smile.
it's so beautiful work! I love them, but I found, there is no date on all of your work :(
This is extraordinary art. Would own it in a flash if I had the $. Roxanne
wow josh, utterly speechless, as always you have such haunting beauty in the strokes of your brush. I feel blessed to understand tid bits of what you have painted, and am compelled to hear the story of the rest. you have a gift of bringing your imagination into the physical world.
Look into my grandmother "Marriane Navasie" decesed. Also a fine artist of the traditional Hopi Pottery.
i love it!
Your paintings are beautiful! You touch many peoples hearts with your work!
he is a very well talented person, he is the best grandfather anyone could have and spends most of his time carving and farming. Most of all he loves spending time with his grandchildren.
We love you gwa-ah!
Congratulations, Turid, these are fabulous paintings.
I do truly believe that you have one of many great creations from one profound artist. His elegant style of Native American Contemporary Art has swept inquisitive minds and alluring eyes to firmly believing that all possibilities can and will be accomplished. Yet, still capturing the integrity and humbleness of the love for art and the will to endeavor to excel. Thank you.
Just came across this. Man, these are beautiful! I hope to see in person soon. We were in the same program at Lacoste. Anyway, really cool to see what you've been making - or what has been made through you. Cheers!
What a beautiful, ethereal, space LaGro has created in this painting. Seeing it is like being in a waking dream.
This is so amazing. You almost feel as if the wings are really moving with the design s that are in them. I love it!
Greetings David,wonderful to view your art! Our Laguna Beach painting still looks back at us each and every day and I continueto enjoy as much as when I first viewed! I like this piece very much and I am sure many will want. Best of luck to you and greetings toArlene and Diego(I hope I remembered his name correctly).! Your not so long lost cousin Anita Mohler
absolutely stunning, gorgeous!!
Les's pots are wonderful! We can't be in Santa Fe this summer : between Mom's dying and the re-opening of our burned facility we have to stick closer to home. What can we do?
looks like you still have the touch.
There's that beautiful number 8 again.
I LIKE YOUR PAINTING " MYSTIC WATERS" , EXCELLENT JOB.
Exquisite piece. Looking forward to seeing more of this fused work. Simply beautiful.
OMG I LUV U ORLANDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UR ART IS SO SICK AND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG WHEN IS UR NXT SHOW!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I <3 U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful. Reminds me of a quilt. It captures the spirit and power of nature.sf
These pieces thrilled my senses when I saw them in the gallery on Monday. Vivid, sharp, soft..... they drew me in. The fused glass, intense color - gathering light from the window.Susie Fowler
My highlight of Spanish Market was the Friday reception at Blue Rain Gallary in Santa Fe. Being able to view the works of Gustavo Goler, and Jim Vogel. I feel that the Retablo and Bulto works of Victor are second to none. Sorry to hear that the Taos Gallery was closed but the future is only bright for the folks at Blue Gallery. Looking forward to Spanish Market 2009 !

Jim's work is amazing, I was born in Santa Fe and hope to own one of his paintings one day "soon".LB
This piece is beautiful but the title would flow better if it was "Las Golondrinas"
Tony Abeyta continues to grow in ways that are truly inspirational. This is great work period.I hope artists of all stripes have access to watch this artist florish as continues to redefine and refine represent good art.

This painting is so New Mexican, in that la jente know that as we live, close by are our loved ones are at rest and that some day we will join them. Not a terrible thing but knowledge that gives us peace. As usual Jim has hit it right on the head.
I remember driving cross country and made sure to make it through Taos on our way to CA. I am so grateful that we ran into Blue Rain Gallery and saw your amazing work. I am a fine artist in FL, but I hope so some day to own a piece of yours. Your work has made a place in my mind always and you will have yet another admirer of your amazing creations.
I wanted you know that I always keep a quote of yours printed out on the wall in my studio - "We are all journeying. Our journeys encompass our past, our upbringing, our anguishes and joys..." My work will always be about my journey and your inspiration will be a part of the path I am on.
Thank you for sharing your visions with this world!
I LIKE YOUR WORK, ITS SO COLORFUL ,STRIKING,,, IT LOOKS DELICIOUS TO THE EYES.
I LIKE YOUR WORKS,KEEP UP THE GREAT WORKS. EXCELLENT .
brother, I love the work - good BAIT.
to God the glory...
Mr. Vigil, we purchased two of your pieces in 2006. You were very kind to spend time with us in both 2006 and 2007. We will continue to enjoy your pieces and share them with friends and family for years to come.
Hey-Bruce is my brother and I just want you all to know his family is very proud of the man and artist he has become. He is very caring, he calls daily to check on mom. Its nice to know he's done so well doing work that is so moving/spiritual and being able to love what you do everyday. He is truely blessed. Love you Bruce your little sis Michelle.
Great looking! The detail is outstanding.
wow! this is amazing!
I love the attention to detail with the light, shadow, and car
This painting is amazing! I love the expression on her face - it says so much
Really nice work, Josh. Thanks for sharing it with us.I especially like the Union Stela.Many dreams and visions hidden in there.I hope you're well.Come visit us in Santa Fe soon.-Gregory (from OZ school)
This colletion is GREAT! Is there no Title to any of the art?
One of my most favorite artist in all the world, hoping someday to own a piece. My favorite ones are ethereal and using soft colors in the green plate. Ow I just most all.
Hope to meet you at your next opening.
this is a beautiful synthesis of material and form, lovely.
Preston has brought the 21st century into native art - spectacular! Would he consider teaching?
Joshua, This work is amazing I love the direction you are heading in. The movement and light and color combined to make a beautiful escape in to the story of this painting. I am glad to see you new works!! Miss you.
Wonderful work. Technical expertise combined with a sense of whimsy are a winning combination in my book.
Thank you for sharing your art work. May you always give glory to God in painting the wonders of His creation.
Don't know any contemporary artist that makes work of such sublime beauty and ideas and humor at once. I love it.
Josh,Your work continues to grow & grow. I am excited to see what is next. I truely enjoy you and your talent!You Rock!
Eerie and exquisite...such mastery and control of the medium.
Great site Josh.The art work is wonderful. Great detail. Keep it going. Ann
i now know why people think they see UFO's in New Mexico. This pottery is out of this world! Well done Russel Sanchez, well done indeed.
This moves me. It really connects with me.
alright ..this is my new favorite....In Love with it....thank you. x x
Really dig the 'ropes' ....and the balance of it all...are those "chads"...? hhhmmm interesting...
Oh love this ...reminds me of being a kid and watching the sky on a summer afternoon.....Thank you.
This is such a beautiful piece, there are so many interesting details to look at.
What a magnificent composition! This may be the best Vogel I have ever seen. And the frame is perfect for it--not at all overwhelming--an excellent choice.
I think of cities as vulnerable places,places where people could panic if food was not delivered by trucksor when power failures wear out even a heros patience...I'm not a doom and gloomerI just like being awayfrom such man-made places
imagine a pool of water and fossil stonesI love to follow the creeksand wandering and winding i find secret poolsor hidden rock gardens of incredible beautyand in one flash flood a creek bed is cleared,new boulders,and new swirls of sand and gravelas a record ,a testimony of time and endless change
Reviving our Wyandot language has been a passion of mine also to draw inspiration from my ancient Wyandot ancestors. this piece combines Wyandot formand its castellation rim with the ancient ancestors of the Pueblo peoples whose corrugated ware still dot the ground in the southwest.I love to blend ancient techniques of this land and to come up with something that feels as if it has lifeOur Life is actually that meeting place of past ancestors and our future descendants
Co-creating along with the action of naturethis is a time in my life to occaisionally let the materialshave a voice in themselves and not always be trying to overpower the clay forcing it by my own minds eye...Its difficult for us perfectionists to step back...to allow clay to remain clayI love finding these roots with rocks imbedded. Its spring time,warm enough to wade the creeks,looking for such treasured pieces of wood and to keep an eye out for Water moccasins who also enjoy the roots along the banks.I saw six of them last time i was out in waders.
I call this one "Handled Piece" as a bit of a pun.I couldn't believe my fortune to stumble on this incredible rooton the edge of a torn out bank out here on Sycamore Creek.I doubt I will ever find another so hand like in all its ways.The pot was made especially for the wood piece itself.An alternative way to display it is to place the vessel on a baseand place "the hand" so it is reversed,with its thumb in the airand sort of cupping the "fingers" around it.I was a little sad to see this one go...
This particular piece i did just as the spring colors all around us were replacing the gray and bare woods of winter.In just a few weeks the hardwood forests that are so still and somber have become a busy force of bursting life . the adders tongue shoot up starlike blossoms under the still bare canopy of oaks and the trillium and May apple send spikes unfurling as they push through the decomposing leaves from another season. Then comes the redbud and the dogwoods.here I tried to contrast the green vines of new life with the bare trees showing winter coming to an end
this was a fun piece to create.I call it simply "Crazy Arrow"the piece of root i found along Spring River north of here,the arrow points i made out of local chert,and the turkey wing fletching was from feathers given to me by tribal members of the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma .The clay is native Oklahoma clay dug from a ranch in the Vinita area. The owners of the ranch are Cherokee and I'm so pleasedthey so willingly share with me and even attending the prayers before the digging of clay starts.and sometimes sharing a pipe of traditional tobacco.
what is the value of talent? Beautiful pot.
Uau!Amazing! I know that charcoal is very difficult to work with!Great work!
Way awesome!!!! You are a master artist!
Wow! Tammy has a very good sense of design in all the 3-dimensional elements. Her works are superberb! The designs can be moved around to where it works at all angles. Genious at her art, I might say! You rock the art world with your style! Very nice!
Traditional designs, interpreted in a contemporary way is what draws me to Tammy and Preston's work!
Just searching on the internet and found my name and comment in your blog....how amazing. I'm looking forward to be able to afford an other piece of art from you.
Looking at this drawing almost made me cry. Not only because of the skill you have with charcoal, but this little girl looks a lot like me when i was a little girl. It brought back many memories. It is an excellent drawing!!!!!!!!
I was doing a paper on fine arts and culture for my anthropology class; I reaserched you and your artwork. I was glad i was albe to share with my class your beautiul new peices. All my love.
Fantastic show Tammy! The glass was breathtaking!
I loved the Raven piece that was on the cover of the Smithsonian magazine (I think) . Is that piece available? I'm sure I couldn't afford it, but I like to dream about owning it!!!
Fantastic work cousin!
i never know about you until i had to study you work for my art class. but now that i am familiar with your work you really inspire me.
This cradle is exquisite!!!!
Wonderful work, so much to see, and wry commentary...I look forward to seeing more of his work!
All these paintings have social intimacy but embody a spiritual quality as well--especially this painting of a dugout boat in the cypress swamp.
These pieces are outstanding. I hope in the future to buy at least one.
Very beautiful work. It has some of the charactristics of a self-taught artist but the style is very personal because of the subject matter, but the landscapes are very sophisticated. Wonderful execution.
These water colors are beautiful. Makes you feel like you are right there. Love them. The ones that are not names should be "Peace" "Tranquility" .
This is truely powerful work. I enjoy the symbolism involved as well as the composition. Gerald, you are very talented.
i love ur work
thank you for saving my spirit
hey rodney what it do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOUR JEWELRY!!!!!!!!!!!!
make me a pair just kidding. well c u l8ter brother oh wait wait my mom said hello and bye...........
Love this piece!
This is a very interesting piece. All things are inter related with nature, human form and the crow from the animal world. The subtle colors are beautiful and the bone-like rungs of the ladder are so connected to the past. I can't say any more until Deborah goes into her articulate speaking about it. I hope she will do that.
Mateo had some wonderful things in a show on war in Santa Fe. Why don't you carry more contemporary imaging of his? I found it to be a nice alternative to traditional (and expected) native themes.
Congratulations on being included in Southwest Art's top 10 artist to watch in 2008. Your vibrant colors and thoughtful compositions bring joy to all who see your art.Being true to your spirit always brings rewards beyond our wildest imaginations. We are so proud and happy for you!
I am new to this artist and this picture truly speaks to me !!!
It is great to see the contemporary power of your work. You color is strong and exciting; your design is inventive. I particularly enjoyed the butterfly series.
It's great to see contemporary work like this! Wonderful!
I remember your amazing studio in Taos, where I interviewed you for Tempo. You were working more on monotypes then, so it's nice to see your paintings also. I interviewed so many artists when I lived in Taos, and many of them have blended together in a blur, but I have always remembered your work. Mary
Finally! A young artist has a maturity of a master painter! The artworks a very nice to look at and examine. Thank you!
Your paintings are wonderful to see! Thank goodness you include the other beings that share Mother Earth with us. That is so cool!
Your paintings are very beautiful and must have a personal meaning behind them all. It must take alot of thought, im guessing you probebly stare at a blank wall at church, and the picture flows threw your mind. Thats what helps me paint.
What an interesting idea, to join a wooden piece for a handle with leather to fasten the handle to the pot. I've never seen anything like this and I wanted to let someone know that I appreciate seeing functional art at its best.
This blanket was designed by George Hunt Jr., a Northwest Coast artist from the Kwakiutl tribe. The original limited edition series of the blanket, made in 1995 for the American Indian College Fund, consisted of 1200 blankets. Each blanket came with a stitched on label showing the blanket's number in the series(such as 200/1200).
Reproductions of this blanket were made about 10 years later and were also sold to benefit the American Indian College Fund. Per their website "Tribute to My Grandmother Mary Ebbets, Anislaga" was designed by George Hunt, Jr., a renowned woodcarver of the Kwakiutl tribe of Vancouver Island. Mr. Hunt, Jr. dedicated the design to his great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Ebbets, or Anislaga. As Tlingit legend has it, Anislaga was the living link between the ancient Tlingit culture and contemporary tribal weaving traditions. In ceremonies the blanket is "danced," bringing to life the story of how Mankind was taught to weave by Raven, Lynx, Sea Monster and Bear; when worn, these sacred images surround the wearer."
This is an exceptional piece. Unique to Bruce's work in the sense that it could symbolize the many challenges we face in our own unique spiritual quests for truth. It is both strong and gentle. In my opinion, Bruce LaFountain is one the best scluptors in the world. Having been and lived in Italy where many artists have their pieces constructed and watching the skill of these people and the process that is involved in obtaining marble, which few can work with; To watch Bruce LaFountain work with stone is an art in and of itself. Few have remained true to the craftmanship and Bruce is one of those who can transcend all barriers and will exempfy this within his work. Although, many pieces "appear" similar to the untrained eye, if we look beyond the surface of Bruce's work we will see he will show us that life will reflect art and art will reflect life of which neither are static.
You're still an amazing painter -- as I remember you years ago when I lived in Taos. Just thought about you today out of the blue. Carol
I am just in awe over these piece on this site. This one especially I would have to say is my favorite. I feel a connection here. Maybe its because of my name. Misko asin ekway (Red rock woman) It look like a strong spiritual person. Love You Bruce
wooow !!! I loooove your work !!! keep it coming !! As a fellow artist I appreciate your ability to be open enough to allow the subconscious to flow in you .!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!
I love your beautiful artwork! My family and I were so happy when we got to get a tour of your art studio and met the other people that helps you out! Knowing how much time and effort that you spend to make each piece special makes me appreciate you even more. Keep up the great work!
I never saw anything so beautiful and exciting. All the jewelery is fabulous. Bernice
absolutely fabulous. One of your best, Randy, in my mind!
may god bless your hands and your beautiful gift. your work makes life even more pleasurable.
Dear Tony--Happy Birthday! keep making your wonderful art that touches the depths of our spirits and gratitudes.Ken Goodhue-McWilliams
Such talent, is really quite aweinspiring- makes one wish it possible to become an instant millionaire. Imagine having such a view in every day life.......
i most particularly love the work of randall lagro and gerald cormoyer - stunning color and texture
This is a very awe inspiring piece,I am a northwest coast artist and a great admirer of your work. Paul Siples Anchorage Alaska
Hello, I like your work. And you etch it out with an exacto knife, wow. I'm wondering how you correct a mistake. Someday I will buy one.
Each more beautiful than the last.
Your work is beautiful. Hopefully one day we will meet. I am also a Laguna Potter and have always admired your work..
Oh my god...your work is really nice!
WOW UR PAITINGS HAVE INSPIRED ME TO BECOMA A PAINTER THE WAY YOU HAVE SO MUCH DETAIL TELLS SO MUCHJ ABOUT THE PAINTING
Thank you for sending me this information. It looks fresh and exciting.
It is awesome!!!!
I just happened to look you up online, and to my surprise, there you were!! Your artwork is beautiful as always, I love it!!
Hi, It is facinating. I always love to look at your gallery of new artists and paintings. I am a big fan and hope to be able to purchse more from you. ( price permitting), Pari Andrews, NY
Mr.Tony Abeyta,you are the best!!!!
Mindblowing - eclectic - beautiful work! I always have a smile on my face when viewing Tony's work. He is an inspiration to emerging artists, like myself, and is a great ambassador for his style of painting and his love of the land and his native history.
This is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge women.
If I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest you place your astounding works of glass art into a slide show format.
I found it almost painful to wait for the next frame to be shown.
You are blessed with a gift.
Beautiful pieces, Cavan, with deep spiritual significance, I am sure. I am honored to have taught you at SCIS. I will watch for your pieces in museums.
Wallace is a amazing artist and wish you had more works available.
Your pottery is amazing! The best I have seen anywhere. You are an absolute genius. Keep up the good work!
Unbelievable evolution of an artist. I bought a tiny piece with a single bear paw many years ago at the Eight Northern Pueblo show. Even as a teenager she showed a genius for form and proportion. Very few artists reach this level of complexity and still produce stunningly elegant pieces. It is a joy to see!
Roxanne's figures speak directly to the heart and will be loved by generations.
Dear Mr Tony Abeyta, I Don't know if you remember who I am.I was fortunate enough to meet you for the first time at the Blue Rain Gallery during the 2006 Indian Market.All I want to say is thank you for taking the time to tell me about your work and for the tremendous amount of inspiration you have given me.Once again thank you very much
Takes my breath away !
I love this! Great work Tammy! Donna
Insanely great. Truly one of the great artists of our time.
Your work is world class.
Could you provide information on prices and shipping for the three bear set?
WOW!!!! WOW!!! again...what a gorgeous piece of art.
Would like to see ordering and pricing information. Exceptional work. Very interested.
I love this piece, it is truly out of sight!
I just love your work Tammy! I can't wait for Indian Market this year.
