Cholla at Sunset

 

"Talent must be a fanatical mistress. She's beautiful: when you're with her, people watch you, they notice. But she bangs on your door at odd hours, and she disappears for long stretches, and she has no patience for the rest of your exhistence: your wife, your children, your friends. She is the most thrilling evening of your week, but some day she will leave you for good. One night, after she's been gone for years, you will see her on the arm of a younger man, and she will pretend not to recognize you."

--David Benioff, City of Thieves

Morning Fire 

Welcome!

My name is John Meister and I am a fine art oil painter living in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

On this site you will find galleries of both my current paintings and examples of my past commercial work. My events calendar lists dates and links for what is going on in my art world. I also have a link to my contact information if you would like to get in touch with me.

I hope that you enjoy your experience here and have some time to look around. If you have any questions or comments about the art, the site in general, or just want to catch up, contact me, I would love to hear from you. Please take time to sign my guestbook before you leave to let me know that you've visited.

Cheers and thanks for stopping by! --John

"Every artist should find a muse ... History, past and present, provides us with a rich diversity in art. When I feel that my muse is hiding from me, I am always inspired by those visual historians who came before and left behind something to admire." –John
