Galilee by Bo Bartlett 88×120″ oil/linen
Galilee, just another of Bo Bartlett’s masterpieces! Bo grew up drawing (in Columbus, GA), and his paintings have become iconic. Once you see them, you’ll know why. Each one is stunning. Each masterfully tells a story. You can tell with a quick glimpse that these paintings are different, in an out-of-this-world way. I love the stories they tell! Be sure to check out Bo’s website, there is so much wonderful reading and great videos to watch – you will be floored!
DO NOT MISS the Videos, they are outstanding. Bo and his family are just so very interesting.
Bo’s Messages come straight from the heart, and I think he has such a wonderful attitude about life and all that goes with it. Do not miss these! There is so much more, just spend some time on his website. These paintings are stunning! We’ve seen his work in person at Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland, Maine, and WOW. You can look at them forever! I have to agree with Bo… It’s a magic world, and I think his paintings add that magic!
Read a bit about Bo, from his website:
“Bartlett was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where realist principles must be grasped before modernist ventures are encouraged. He pushes the boundaries of the realist tradition with his multilayered imagery. Life, death, passage, memory, and confrontation coexist easily in his world. Family and friends are the cast of characters that appear in his dreamlike narrative works. Although the scenes are set around his childhood home in Georgia, his island summer home in Maine, his home in Pennsylvania or the surroundings of his studio and residence in Washington state, they represent a deeper, mythical concept of the archetypal, universal home.”
