Faye Taylor

 
Pineville, Oregon

Artist's Statement

There’s nothing like a good story and that’s how I think of my paintings.  They each have a story to tell.  Throw in some western flavor and juice it up with a colorful background plot and you have a Faye Taylor.

Because I paint from real life, I paint in a realistic style, spicing it up with color, shape and value to keep things lively and interesting.  My subjects are usually on the move, so I reference photos when I paint in my studio. 

I started out as a fashion illustrator in 1980, but for the last 13 years I have traded fashion for passion…passion for the western figure and all else western.  Living in Central Oregon cowboy country, many of my friends are also my subjects.

“Who Broke Who?”

“Who Broke Who?”

Oil on canvas

This young cowboy had been participating in ranch style bronc riding, which simply means he was using his own work saddle rather than a special style bronc saddle. I don't know if he made his ride or not, but he looks a little down on himself the way he's holding his head down.

What I loved about this subject is the way his fringe dances with motion as he walks.!

Dimensions: 32" H x 16" W
$2300.00 framed

“Slim”

"Slim"

Oil on canvas

You can see an S-curve in the background which draws attention to the S-curve of the cowboy's form. This was very deliberate on my part. This kind of echoing shape is very pleasing to the eye and causes your eye to circulate throughout the painting.

Dimensions: 18" H x 9" W
$729.00 framed

“Burnin’ Daylight”

“Burnin’ Daylight”

I've run into this cowboy several times at rodeos and brandings. This time he was rushing to change mounts. That day he helped brand about 100 heifers weighing an average of 800 lbs.

“Purdy Tough”

"Purdy Tough"

Oil on canvas

I loved this cowboy's pose and entire get up. Fancy red boots that were worn for work and the Spanish rowel spurs. You can't see it but he wore a big handlebar mustache too.
You can still be tough even when you’re purdy.

Dimensions:32" H x16" W
$2300.00 framed
