Artist of the moment……..Buckeye Blake


Buckeye Blake and his family have been involved in the American West and its traditions for many generations. Buckeye Blake was born in the year 1946.  His grandfather was a horse breeder. Growing up Buckeye travelled the country on the rodeo tour.

Before honing his talent as a fine artist Blake had various jobs in the creative industry including sign painting and painting backgrounds and sets for the entertainment industry.

The artist when working on a piece might finish one in oils, one in watercolors, and one using just ink.

The artist and his wife have a lovely home which they enjoy sharing with animals.

Blake is based out of Texas and also like his grandfather is raising horses.

Blake has been very successful as a commercial artist, creating clothing, furniture, and posters.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I enjoy looking at the more modern western painters like Buckeye Blake and Donna Howell-Sickles, both breathe new life and great compositions to the western genre.

Blake works as a painter and also a sculptor.
