If the title of the painting and the honey-colored glow didn’t tip you off, then cowboy’s relaxed sit on the horse might say it all. Day is done after a hard day’s work.

“I started off in my art career with figurative work,” says the artist. “I love painting people and wildlife, and Western scenes are a mixture of both. As a child, I watched old Western TV programs and cowboy and Indian films with my grandfather. His favorite trick was to find things like light bulbs in an old cowboy show…things that shouldn’t be there. My Western scenes are in contemporary settings but really the lifestyle and purpose of the work is the same as it was 150 years ago. The work is physical, and the serenity at the end of the day is well earned.”




John Bye
“It’s the satisfaction of pushing formless gobs of paint around until they coalesce into something that looks real that excites me about painting. I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to paint with less detail but that is not who I am. Leaving something incomplete, whether that be the subject or its environment, pains me to the point of madness” John was born on February 17, 1970 in Styvechale, Coventry. There have been artistic people throughout John’s family history and he has inherited his abilities. Self taught, John skills as an artist have grown with him. His aim is for each piece to capture the life and spirit of the subject he paints. His earlier works were in pencil and were mainly human subjects. John has experimented with various other mediums from oils, watercolors and pastels, eventually realizing that his favorite medium is acrylic.
