“Salt and Pepper” Watercolor
John Fawcett received his doctorate as a veterinarian at Iowa Sate University. He worked with small animal and equine veterinarians before he opened his own practice. He was always interested in art but had never considered it for a career. In 1996 he sold his practice to paint full time and pursue his dream of being an artist. Fawcett started out painting mainly in watercolor but has introduced oils to his repertoire. “It depends on the subject matter and what medium I feel like painting with at the time. There is a certain softness and fluidness with watercolors while oils provide rich colors and textures and a buttery feeling.” Since taking the leap of faith to become an artist, he has been invited to participate in some of the most prestigious Western Art Shows in the country and is represented by top galleries. He has been featured in Art of the West, Western Horseman Cowboys and Indians The Equine Image Informart and US Art magazines. He and his wife, Elizabeth, and their animals live in Southern Pennsylvania and Northern Colorado. Visit email@example.com
