The Art of Paul M Pritchett

Paul Pritchett’ photo realism draws the eye to his skillfully created work. Paul has lived in Mission, Texas for the past three years teaching oil painting classes and painting his own work.  He loves painting western art, landscapes and portraits that look very real; Paul’s detailed use of light and shade reminded me of seventeen century Nordic paintings.

Originally from the Red River region of northern Texas, Paul now lives in the Rio Grande Valley where he enjoys the people, the weather and participating in art fairs like Edinburg’s Jardin del Arte.

To contact Paul regarding classroom or private painting classes please call (956) 897-9963

La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" living in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Life, art and culture, poetry, prayers, travel, and camping! yes, that's my new thing. I blame the heat and high humidity for the madness. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
