I am proud to be… my father’s son, my mother’s pride and joy, my sisters’ favorite brother, my sisters’ only brother, my nephews’ uncle, my nieces’ tio, my cousins’ primo, my godson’s padrino, one who loves to write letters, one who loves to laugh, one who use to look at rocks for a living, a beautiful shade of brown, an accidental artist, and a total geek.
ARTIST STATEMENT Lone Quixote is an artist whose journey is characterized by his quest to interpret everyday images into personal visions. Inspiration was found in the stunning backdrops of the Texas sky and in the oil rigs that dot the landscape, which are viewed as symbols of daily contrasts and conflicts. During his years working in the oilfields of Texas, he developed a unique approach to creating art, seeking to extract meaning from his surroundings to produce organic, visually expressive works.
Lone Quixote's technique is self-taught, honed through his experiences in the oilfield, and characterized by a quick and purposeful application of acrylic paint. While his journey as an artist began as a hobby during his downtime in the oilfield, it quickly evolved into a passion and eventually a profession. With a growing audience and a style and subject matter that continues to evolve, Lone Quixote's journey as an artist has just begun and there are sure to be many exciting adventures to come.
