     Paul, a Colorado artist creates breathtaking original oil paintings on canvas  of dramatic western landscapes that include Native American subjects, Cowboy, Vaquero, landscape, ranch wildlife, fly fishing and sporting art.  Kethley's western fine art paintings are carefully painted by the application of rich deposits of pure color that give each painting a textured look.  In many of these paintings Paul places Native American, cowboy, vaquero, horse and fly fishing figures in Colorado mountain landscapes and ranch scenes in such a way that reveals a story free for the imagination of the viewer.

    Being one of the popular contemporary artists of the American West, Paul  produces plein-air, original oil paintings that serve as a study to later assist him in producing a larger painting in the studio.  At this stage Paul may incorporate into the painting a Native American on a paint horse in a Colorado mountain landscape or ranch setting, a cowboy in the Rocky Mountains or a fly fisherman angling trout on a Colorado mountain stream.

    Living in the midst of Colorado horse and cattle ranch country, Kethley has also developed a reputation as one of the premier cowboy artists in the Rocky Mountain west who receives commissioned subjects for contemporary and historical western art paintings for those who maintain western art collections in the area.

    Imagine for a moment, your special place  being expressed in the form of an original oil painting on canvas by Paul Kethley.  It is rare indeed to  have a western artist of this caliber offering to collaborate on commissioned museum quality oil paintings.  Paul offers free art consultation on the initial visit.
