Lance Headlee – Distinctively Original
“I don’t paint what I see with my eyes, I paint what I see in my mind. This guarantees you the viewer and me the artist there is only one original painting like it on this planet”
Imagination Running Wild – I never know what the image will be until it enters my mind and starts to dance. Images come and go – it’s the ones that stay and dance that talk to me. They dance the best and stay the longest, and are always talking to me. They say “paint us distinctively unique” “paint us fun” “paint us colorful” “Paint us cool and sexy” “paint us big, bold and beautiful” but most of all don’t paint us if you can’t challenge yourself and paint something new and different. As an artist “Different” is always the challenge for me. Painting images straight from imagination are images you can’t find anywhere else in the world. In the world of art Distinctively Original is my challenge and one I gladly except. My clients and collectors love the fact that the fun images I paint are one of a kind original images, the only paintings like them on this planet.
Art Is My Life – At the age of eight, the first thing my father ever showed me how to draw was a cowboy on a piece of paper. When he drew it, I freaked out and asked him to do it again, and he did. I looked on in amazement. Watching my father make that cowboy come alive putting pencil to paper changed my life forever. Since that day, art and the creative process of bringing imagination to life has consumed my world. What you see today is no doubt the end result of that amazing moment in time with my Father.
Art has been a large part of my world for as long as I can remember. I have been applying paint to canvas for over 35 years. It is the challenge of the entire creative process that interests me the most. Bringing ideas from mind to reality, and the journey from beginning to end is a beautiful process. It doesn’t matter to me what it is, as long as it allows me to let my mind run free so I can imagine and explore the possibilities of creating something new for myself and the viewer.
Those Were The Days – I’ve always been a cowboy just ask my MOM – because someone took these pictures and it wasn’t me, I just found them.
These are pictures of aka “Young Gun” and my dog “T-bone”. This is about the age I started to drawLANCE HEADLEE YOUNG GUN and let my imagination run free. Can you say Bonanza and Gun Smoke, Those were the days. I had to have the same hat as Hass Cartwright. Google it! It’s Googleable. Which wasn’t even a word back then. lol
