“I didn’t choose art as a career, it chose me” is the answer often given by Tom Browning whenever asked why he decided to become an artist. Browning began drawing horses, wildlife and Indians at age seven, and after five decades of painting and studying the work of Charlie Russell, James Reynolds and Haddon Sundblom, he never tires of finding exciting ways to express this subject matter with the colorful and fluid brushwork that distinguishes his place in the Western art market.
In 2009, Browning won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award for his painting The Dawn of a New Day. Later that same year he was elected into the esteemed Cowboy Artists of America.
Today he is best known for his oil paintings portraying horse and cattle drives filled with a convincing sense of light and dust.
