The Anthony J. Padgett artist blog begins!

Tony at book signing zoomed inFor many, art is very personal.  As an artist, I too want to have a personal connection to the subject matter I’m painting.  My frequent trips to the field observing and photographing structures, lighting, wildlife, and landscapes give me the encounters in nature that will potentially show up in a future painting.  When I am behind my brush, I recall the different elements in the scene as I experienced them in the field.  I remember the sounds, temperature, smells, and the mood of the day.  I try to capture these experiences in a painting that will connect with others.  I am often asked what inspired the piece, where it was, when it was, etc.  As the conversation continues, a definite connection is made between the artist, the viewer, and the artwork itself.  Unfortunately, time and distance are obstacles making it difficult to speak with many of you in person and it is for this reason that I need to find other ways to communicate.  My first published book “An Artist’s Journey with Wildlife Artist Anthony J. Padgett” co-authored with my good friend and fishing buddy Larry Richardson was a good first step in bringing my story to you.  This coffee table style book shares my journey into wildlife art and features a large gallery section with over a hundred of my paintings.  I realize however that publishing a book to share with you is not enough, so I have a plan…..
