Painting of bobcat and cub

Margaret Thompson - I was born and raised in Texas and moved to Arizona in 1971. After moving from Tempe to Tucson, I began oil painting. I found wonderful art teachers who helped me learn style, color, content and techniques. At first, painting was like learning a new language and I began to see “life around me “ in a whole different light and distinguish variations of color.

Margaret Thompson - I was born and raised in Texas and moved to Arizona in 1971. After moving from Tempe to Tucson, I began oil painting. I found wonderful art teachers who helped me learn style, color, content and techniques. At first, painting was like learning a new language and I began to see “life around me “ in a whole different light and distinguish variations of color. After some time, I found that I preferred painting scenes from western art to desert Southwest and animals of the Southwest. Painting has become a wonderful way of expanding my hidden talents.
