Bill Owen, known to some as “the Cowboy Artist” captures the western ranchers and cattlemen with ease. No matter what painting you look at, all of his artwork takes you immeidately into the action of the moment. The colors he incorporates into his paintings are so accurate, you can feel the heat of the Arizona desert, taste the dirt and dust kicked up by the horses and feel the sway of the horse beneath the saddle.

Only days away now – the prestigious Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, Arizona. I am giddy to get on the road, set up my artwork and meet all of the wonderful people who come to this event!
What exactly is going on you ask? The Phippen Museum’s 39th Annual Western Art Show and Sale taking place May 25–27, 2013.
The Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale — Arizona’s premier outdoor western art sale — is held each year in downtown Prescott, Arizona, the Cowboy Capital of the American West. The 2013 event will feature more than 100 talented artists from all over North America in booths surrounding the historic courthouse.
“The Show and Sale provides local residents and visitors to Prescott with a chance to view exceptional western art and to engage in discussions with professional Western artists about their work,” commented Kim Villalpando, Phippen Museum Executive Director. “So many of the participating artists throughout the years have gone on to be some of the most renowned Western artists today.”
