Cover Artist 

Bill Anton  

 

November 2013 issue  

 

 

     “The focus of my work has always been mood and passion,” explains RMR’s November Cover artist, Bill Anton.

     “I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a Western night. The pack of muscle below a horse’s shoulder should be energized by the gestural application of paint. An artist under the spell of the West has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure and equine painting into a supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.”

     Anton studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. His work has been featured in top Western and art magazines; is in the permanent collection of museums and many corporate collections. He has won numerous awards, including museum purchase awards, Gene Autry Memorial Award, Spirit of the West Award and Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Awards.

     Anton was born in Chicago and attended college in Illinois and Arizona , where he settled with his family. After becoming inspired by Western painters in the late 1970s, he became an artist full-time in 1982. He learned the cowboy way first-hand by working cattle at roundups; and developed a love of plein-air painting with inspiration from artists Anders Zorn, Edgar Payne and Frank Tenney Johnson.
