Don Weller

“My plan was to be a cowboy, but by the time I was born the open range was all chopped up by barbed wire”, says Don Weller. Don drew horses as a kid and rodeoed up through college. His career in Los Angeles included doing graphic design and illustration, which included posters for The Hollywood Bowl, covers for Time and TV Guide, and stamps for the U.S. Post Office. He has taught at numerous Colleges and Universities in California, Arizona, Utah, Texas, and Washington state. More »

Here, Thanks. I'll Be Right Back
by Don Weller

   

Mr. Weller paints images of today’s west as he knows it. He paints cowboy friends and their adventures together. He wants his paintings to be realistic enough that the horses, people and scenes are recognizable; the details correct, and tell a true story.

Don uses watercolor because he feels comfortable with it. His paintings are carefully planned in advance, with a result that feels fresh and direct. Paintings generated by Don are started with the most difficult parts, faces, hats, and horses heads. He is concerned with the subject and sense of story, but he also cares about interesting shapes, texture, pattern, and the abstract quality of the composition. Don conveys his goal, “ I want the viewer to sense the hand of the artist in the brush work, the colors blossoming into one another, and the details left out”.
