Bruce Greene

Bruce and his family live on a small ranch in the historical community of Norse, near Clifton, Texas. The artist's studio is on the edge of a hill out behind the house. From there, large north windows offer Bruce a continuous view of the Texas Hill Country, a few Hereford cows and the occasional whitetail deer. "It is a wonderful blessing to be able to make a living for my family, doing what I love in this beautiful place," says Greene.

Several years ago, Bruce began making annual trips to join in the "spring work" on the great, old JA Ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon of north Texas. He says, "I go up there and stay on the chuck wagon with the JA hands and the neighbors that have come to help. We ride a lot of miles in rough country. It can be cold, hot, windy and wet. In fact, it can be all of those things in one day. A fella could get lost in some of the mesquite or cedar thickets. The JA trip has been a real inspiration for me each year. I am absolutely certain that this experience has greatly affected my artwork. My good friend, Red Steagall, calls it 'getting the dust in your nose.' For me, that dust makes all the difference."

Bruce was elected to membership in the prestigious "Cowboy Artists of America" in 1993 and has recently served as its President. His artwork is represented in several annual shows and exhibitions including the Cowboy Artists of America Exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum, the Prix de West Show at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma, the Masters of American West Fine Art Exhibition at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in California and the Round Up Miniature Show at the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas.
