"Hi and thank you for your interest in my art. I began drawing and painting as a child. My love of art has taken a front seat and with each stroke of my brush, my passion is driven onto canvas. I seek to inspire through the power of light and color and seek to bring out the soul of the subject in front of me." - Bruce Strickland

Art to the Rescue

Bruce's art work often focuses around rescued cats and dogs. He then places those animals in special settings, sometime real and sometimes imaginary. He could easily make up a cat or dog from imagination but he seeks to tell the stories of the rescues and allows them, for once in their lives, to take center stage and be the stars of his creations. ​He hopes you will allow them into your home as well, as beautiful pieces of art that will last a lifetime and with a beautiful true story as well. In the process you will help us save even more lives.  

Bruce's latest work.....

"Evening Reflections"

"Evening Reflections", my latest painting, stars a Siamese cat that is full of life. Mr. D is not quite what we call this guy. The D is short for a name that is actually his previous owners. I am calling him D to not give away the previous owners identity. Those same owners loaded up a Uhaul one day and left Mr D behind like you would garbage, Fortunately Mr D had been eating at our back door for about a year, off and on, so he knew where to come for food. At the time we had three black cats that, although fixed, preferred to be outside. So he would visit them and eat with them. Once we brought them indoors permanently, he was next. His owner never knew he would eat at our house. It was sad to watch after his owners abandoned him. Mr D would go back up the street to his house, which was empty and dark, and sit, waiting for them to come home. Eventually he gravitated to our back yard for most of his time. Until we finally got him inside. He had a lot of behavioral issues early on, it was obvious he had been abused. Fortunately he has proven himself trustworthy with the other cats. He will have a permantnent home right where he is. And he seems to be content with that in my latest painting "Evening Reflections"
