Eugenia Talbott Featured in Rodeo News

Lunatic Fringe—the legendary saddle bronc and true rodeo celebrity—has a huge fan base, many of whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet this year in Wickenburg, Arizona. He’s a big, powerful horse, and stunningly beautiful. 15 years old, 1325 lbs. and 15.2 hands. I’m told he’s a gentleman, but that he took his job seriously in the arena. He appeared 11 times at the National Finals Rodeo (NFR).

Bruce Hunt, father of Anna Hunt and soon to be father-in-law to Matt Burch, commissioned my painting of Lunatic Fringe. Matt and his brother Chad own Burch Rodeo Company and Lunatic Fringe, who is said to be one of the best saddle broncs in generations. It was a fun project and an honor to paint this handsome stallion. Lunatic was retired after this year’s 2016 NFR at the New Year’s “Buckin’ Ball” in Gillette, Wyoming. Now he spends his days with his mares in Gillette.

Rodeo News magazine featured Lunatic Fringe and Burch Rodeo Co. on their April 2017 cover. They followed the piece with a special review about me, my art, and the painting I created of the Burch’s famous horse. You can see it online at rodeonews.com.

I’ve had my winter studio for the last two years at the Rusty Rooster in Wickenburg, AZ. The owner, Gerri Warren, has become a great friend. Rusty Rooster is where I painted “Lunatic Fringe” and my painting of a longhorn bull that was entitled “Don’t Call me Buttercup!” by my friend, Charles Sampson. Charles is a World Champion bull rider, inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and holds countless other honors.

Both paintings are available in limited edition prints at Rusty Rooster (928-684-6884), my website https://talbottstudios.com, and via my Facebook email address. The “Lunatic Fringe” print on canvas measures 20″ w x 25″ h.

New Painting Named by Charles Sampson

My newest piece, an oil painting of a longhorn bull, was recently entitled, “Don’t Call Me Buttercup!” by 1982 World Champion Bull Rider Charles Sampson. Charles was the first African American cowboy to win a world title in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). He retired at the Dodge National Circuit Finals in Pocatello, ID, in 1994 and was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1996. It was a great honor to meet him, and a greater honor still for him to give me the title for my painting!

GoodBean Cafe Jacksonville Presents Eugenia Talbott in September

Can you imagine painting watercolors of Polar bears in the Arctic chill of Canada?  Eugenia Talbott, a native of Mississippi, has bred, trained and shown Arabian horses, helped curb the illegal transport of exotic animals across borders, traveled the world, written books, taught art to at-risk youth and even raised children, painting all the while.  Now settled in southern Oregon, she’s still creating amazing oils, watercolors and graphite drawings of her beloved animal subjects.  It’s the GoodBean’s privilege to show prints of Genie’s African big cats along with original equine art, dog portraits and more, in watercolor, oil and graphite in our Jacksonville cafe through the end of September.

Genie also has a show of the original oil paintings of her big cats and more African art at the Berryman Gallery at the Craterian Theater through September.

“Painting is life and breath to me.”

-Eugenia Talbott

Painting has been the motivating force in this artist’s life since she was a young girl growing up in southern Mississippi. Through her art, she overcame her childhood shyness and embarked on a journey of creativity that has never lost momentum.  Talbott’s work is displayed in collections around the world. One of her larger pieces graces the entrance to the private Polo Club of His Royal Highness, the Crown Prince of Johar, Malaysia.
With travels to South America, Europe, North Africa, the wilds of Alaska, to the Canadian Arctic, she has continually sought new subjects for her portraiture, both human and animal. Whether native people of Canada, polar bears, majestic Arabian horses, zebras, a cougar named Zack, the family dog, or a beloved grandson sleeping with his toy bear–all have come to life under Talbott’s brush.

A commissioned portraitist, muralist, and interior designer, Talbott is equally adept at oil, watercolor, and graphite. She is also adventurous in the size and character of her work as seen in her exquisite screens used as room dividers, with subjects varying from leopards, to horses and zebras…and more. Her original designs painted in oil on wood are now available in limited edition reproductions.

Talbott earned a Degree in Fine Art from Mississippi University for Women, with advanced studies in the U.S. and Europe. Her full and varied life experience has contributed greatly to the dramatic impact of her work. She bred Arabian horses, taught art to children in the Canadian Arctic, and developed art programs for juvenile detention centers in her home state, providing dimension to the lives of troubled youths. Most recently she served on the Board of Directors for the Magdalene Home in Medford, Oregon. www.magdalenehome.org

 

“I guess it would be best to describe my art as a body of work reflecting people and animals of the world that I have seen and cared for deeply.”

"Siberian Majesty," original oil painting of a Siberian Tiger by Eugenia Talbott

“Siberian Majesty,” original oil by Eugenia Talbott

Talbott also worked for Cedarhill Animal Sanctuary, located in Caledonia, Mississippi, lecturing frequently on the abuses imposed upon exotic animals by those who purchase them for pets–her book Exotic Calls, a stunning account of the horrors that exist in the exotic animal world. The proceeds of her new print titled, Siberian Majesty, is dedicated to Big Al, one of the twenty tigers rescued by the sanctuary.  www.CedarhillAnimalSanctuary.org  When asked to define her career as an artist thus far, “I guess it would be best to describe my art as a body of work reflecting people and animals of the world that I have seen and cared for deeply.”
The artist lives in southern Oregon with her husband Wayne Adderson, a writer who shares her passion for adventure and art. “Oregon has become my new home and is glorious to explore. It is truly a wonderful place to live, though a part of my heart will always be with my sons and their precious families, my friends, and the mythical and mysterious land and legends of the Deep South.”
