Here is the next installment of an art purchase (one of several) that I made at this year’s Tulsa’s NatureWorks Wildlife Art Show and Sale. I’ve been wanting to collect a painting by Jerry Ricketson for quite some time and was finally able to acquire one. This piece, an original oil, is entitled “Evening Calm,” was painted in 2015, and measures 25 x 21 (with the frame). It was extremely satisfying as a collector to finally acquire a painting from an artist that I have been following and hoping to someday collect. Hopefully, the first of many more. I was also able to pick up a painting by Matthew Higginbotham, another painting by Christopher Westfall, as well as a piece by Virginia Stroud.
