Art was always my focus and I wanted to go to art school after high school, however, God had other plans. So after an 18-year delay, in 1975 I started painting again while living in Davis, Ca. I entered some local shows and exhibits and was met with modest success. After a few years I decided to try to make a living with my art. More »

Looking Back
by Lorna Dillon

Painting local landscapes in rural northern California provided rich fodder for my childhood dream of living the ranch life. I began adding cattle to my paintings and started showing at livestock shows. . . out in the dirt between the squeeze chutes and the Loomix guy. That was great training and I met some great people. Soon I began painting more cattle, horses and, of course, cowboys. About 9 years ago, I began learning more about the vaqueros of old and their influence that exists today in the style of riding, bridling and training horses. That style is reflected in my work today.

The Cattlemen’s Conventions and various livestock-oriented trade shows were prime venues for displaying my work - I could always count on learning more about the industry I’d come to love. Also, the art festival and fairs circuit proved invaluable to learning to produce. Those were difficult shows with rain and wind hazards before the era of the new canopies. By 1985, I began to enter some of the better western art shows in the west: The Ellensburg Western Art Show, C. M. Russell Show, The Phippen Western Art Show and then received invitations to exhibit in such shows as the Saddleback Art Show, the Ceres Western Art Show, the San Luis Obispo Cattlemen’s Art Show, Peppertree Ranch Art Show, and the Mountain Oyster Show.

Finally, 2004 will be a landmark year. It is the first year I’ll be included in the Prix de West Show Invitational at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, the first Phippen Museum Miniature Masterpieces show, as well as the Richard Schmid Fine Art Auction in Colorado.

This career has been a wonderful and exciting journey with many unexpected twists and turns. The people I’ve met and friends I’ve made along the way have enriched my life beyond my wildest expectations.

P. S. I’ve been invited to return to the Prix de West Show in 2005 - and am thrilled about that!
