About the Artist:
God, family, country- those are the three words often paired with folk artist Eric Dowdle. His whimsical, patriotic art stirs nostalgic and cheerful emotions for what makes our vast world intimate and extraordinary. Rich rural landscapes of homes and farms, cityscapes featuring customs and foods, playful families and the traditions that keep them together are all common features in a Dowdle painting. Fluffy "Dowdle clouds" and sculpted "Dowdle mountains" are signature icons that can be found in most pieces Eric paints. A closer look at the art reveals playful stories that reflect the particular piece's history. Eric will also often add a name or icon to reflect events that took place as he painted that particular piece. Exploring the details of a Dowdle painting is a great adventure. Whether you place a framed piece of art in your home or assemble a Dowdle Puzzle for a family activity, it evokes the same wistful feeling that turns our hearts back to the values that make- and have made- our cultures and civilizations unique.
