"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
Bruce's art work 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 story as well. In the process you will help us save even more.

"Brighter Days" 20x16 oil on Belgian linen
I always try to use rescues in my paintings and I like to make them my star and they have a legacy from then on. My latest painting actually has two stars. Both have been around for quite a while, both have seen a lot of heartache and trouble in their lives but they have weathered each storm and passed with flying colors. Though they have been down on a few occasions they have always come through stronger. And better yet, both have many more brighter days ahead. I hope you enjoy my latest painting "Brighter Days".
When I was thinking of the design for this piece I wanted to make sure it would be seen as art but yet convey a message from my heart to you. I was careful to respect our American flag while showing it in the context of art. It's my hope that others will be able to pull a message of hope from this painting. May this work remind us when we are down that truly brighter days are coming.
