By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary
American landscape painter George Bruce Foxworthy (born 1949 in Indianapolis, Indiana).
Bruce Foxworthy is a contemporary American Artist who has resided in the state of Michigan since 1962.
As a young boy, Bruce’s favorite TV show featured a marionette star character named Howdy Doody. Engaging his engineering and artistic aptitudes Howdy Doody inspired Bruce to start building his own original marionettes, which his mother made clothes for. Bruce drew the front, side, and back views of his imagined marionettes' heads, feet and hands then used these drawings as guide lines to carve their three- dimensional appearance.
Drawing seemed to come naturally to Bruce and was something he was always doing as a kid. Around the age of nine, Bruce recalls how amazed his folks were with one particular drawing of his two guinea pigs inside their chicken wire cage that his father had built. So impressed with his passion to draw, one day his father presented him with a Robert Wood’s beginners oil painting set. In the mid 1950’s Robert Wood’s landscape prints were in nearly every household across America. His love affair with painting landscapes began then and has never wavered.
In 2015 one of Bruce’s Plein Air Landscapes was featured in the online Plein Air Magazine.
Bruce reflects about his own art journey up to present day in his recent "Pushing The Brush" article published under the Email Newsletter page of his website and available to read here at the link below.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist
George Bruce Foxworthy (Born 1949)
“Someone once said to me, you’re the most talented and creative person I have ever known. What’s it like to be an artist? I thought about that for a second and said, when I wake up in the morning it quickly becomes my intention to fall in love. Every color I mix has never been made before. Isn’t that something?”
