"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.

My new book "A Cat's Journey To Your Soul" is available now!

I am so happy to be able to introduce my new book to everyone. I pour out my soul to you in this book. Sometimes a little sad, and sometimes downright hilarious, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

"The Wait"

I would like to introduce you to my latest painting "The Wait".

This beautiful black and white cat is staring out onto an evening lawn, perhaps in the late Spring or early Summer. You can almost smell the bar-b-que in the back yard, with the apple pie in the oven.

But something is missing. Actually someone is missing. This cat is waiting for that special someone to return home. We all, at one time or another, wait for that special someone to get home. Our world completes when we see them walk up the sidewalk or drive into the driveway. I hope you like "The Wait" as much as I enjoyed creating it.

"The Wait" stars a beautiful black and white cat that is full of life. Her name is Alice. She just showed up in our driveway one afternoon as a kitten and made herself a part of our family.

There is more to her story that is part of my new book of stories that is out. You can find that book on Amazon or here on my site. The title is "A Cat's Journey To Your Soul"

The original painting for the "The Wait" is 16x20 oil on belgian linen. It will be available sometime later.

Prints and cards are available now.

The 16x20 giclee paper prints are limited to just 20. They are signed and numbered by me. They will also include my signed and embossed certficate of authenicity.

The 16x20 stretched canvas prints are open edition.

The 8x10 giclee paper prints are open edition. The 8x10 also includes a white mat.

This is the second of my paintings where I have added a paw print to the right of my name. The paw print signifies awareness for cat and dog rescues. Many of you are already rescuers. We encourage everyone to find a place in their heart to rescue from a shelter and save a life - or two - or three.
