2. Bruce Black (1970 Present) grew up in Phoenix Arizona, spending summers at his cabin up in the woods of Northern Arizona. The peace of the desert and the vistas of the high country inspired Black to begin the journey of being an artist. THE MANGO SELLER 3. Black studied art at the University of Arizona, earning a bachelors degree in Fine Art. He then went on to the University of Delaware for his masters degree in Fine Art. Following graduate school, he worked for several years as an art professor in Oregon before eventually moving back to his Native Arizona. MARKET CYCLIST 4. Currently, Black lives in Phoenix Arizona where he continues to paint and teach art. His paintings are housed in numerous public and private collections, as he is quietly becoming one of Americas premier watercolor artists. Falling Apart 5. Blacks work fits within the realm of American Realism. The fluid brushwork and rustic scenes are similar to American master, Winslow Homer. In addition the lonely settings of old farm houses and barns recall the stark and quiet style of Edward Hopper. Fresh Fruit 6. Lichen Rock 7. Market-Fruit Stand 8. Columbia River Gorge 9.

Although he is comfortable painting in a wide variety of medias and styles, watercolor was Blacks first love, and he handles the medium with the fluency and confidence of a master. He states, I remember visiting galleries in Scottsdale with my grandparents way back in the late seventies. They enjoyed watercolors and introduced me to a number of artists working at that time. That was when I started painting, and I have never stopped or wanted to do anything else. Learning the Ropes 22. Rain Over Sedona 23. Winter Cabin 24. Wet Beaver Creek 25. Gone Fishing 26.
