Walking a thin line between the old and the new, contemporary Western painter Sean Michael Chavez depicts his vision of the southwest in a pallet of soothing grays and mid-range value keys.

Fantastic View Into Artist’s Minds
I first got interested in this podcast when a fellow artist/friend was a guest and now I’m hooked! It’s so interesting and I just love the way the interviewer delves into the artist’s inspirations, process, and style. It’s great to listen to whenever I have a little “painter’s block” and it really inspires me.
A wonderful resource!
This has been a great source of advice and enjoyment for me as an artist and teacher. The material covers tips for beginners and it’s great to hear from new emerging artists. The language is school appropriate and would be a great addition to an art class.
