Viewing the art of Mr. Lee Bowman is inspiring. It is as if we are truly in the presence of that which he artfully captures on his canvas. Enjoy the beauty of his art with me and learn a little bit more about the man behind that art.
When did you first decide that you wanted to be an artist?
Although I have had creative urges my entire life, after some discouragement in my life, I buried those urges until the fall of 2012.
What was your first art creation?
My first creation was a drawing. During my second year of schooling, I entered the creation in a stick figure contest. That was in 1950 and I won 2nd placed! [I received information that] I may have actually won 1st place if there had not been pre-existing favoritism on the part of the teacher, toward the first place winner. 🙂
What was your first memorable art piece?
My first memorable piece was my first attempt at painting a Florida seascape [including one of those unique and spectacular dawn skies].
Please describe “A Day in the Life of Lee Bowman, Artist Extraordinaire.”
I’m up at 4am every day. The peace and quiet is wonderful therapy. That is a special time for thinking and decision making. I decide and create what I plan to paint before my brush touches the canvas. I have discovered that being spontaneous is not a good idea for me.
What do you do with your art?
I have sold 20 pieces [as of the] date of this interview. Please see any link(s) in the “Connecting” section at the bottom of this interview; located under the relevant link reference(s).
During my second year of schooling, I entered the creation in a stick figure contest. That was in 1950 and I won 2nd placed!
What are your plans for the future?
More of the same…I have discovered “the joy of painting”, which at my age is spectacularly enjoyable and fun…to say nothing about the happy bucks that come my way 🙂
In the words of Lee Bowman, from his Fine Art website, “I hope you enjoy viewing my landscape and waterscape paintings,
