John Foster Art

  Welcome to Johnfosterart.com!

You might be interested to know I have created art since my early childhood.

Art I believe is an expression of the deep feelings that speak to us silently as we openly allow the creation of our own lives…second by second, minute by minute, etc.

Mother Nature, the greatest offspring sculptor of God, is my most prolific teacher.

This website contains some of the artistic works that I have created recently and in the past.

If you see a creation that you believe you would like to purchase, we can send you additional photos before you decide.

Some artistic creations produced by most anyone are priceless. If you see one of John’s works that you would like to own, please make an offer.

The classic bucking bronco – oil on canvass with antique type frame!

     OP1801

Prints on canvass or acrylic also are available from $40 to $100.

This wild bronco ride was captured on film in 1932 in Pinedale, Wyoming. It was Bump Boedeker riding. He was the father of a friend who is now deceased. By the late 1950s, the photo was know in that area to be one of the best dynamic photos of all time, showing a man breaking a bronc. This wonderful, one-of-a-kind painting was created on archival hardboard in 2008. The painting is 18″ x 24.” The frame is 28″ x 34.” It truly is a pleasure to view. I especially am fond of it because I use to break and train horses in Dubois, Wyoming when my friend was the cook on the Red Rock Ranch.

Boedeker Butte was named after him or his family. It is located several miles north of Dubois, Wyo, just above Bog Lake, an area where I also created oil paintings.
