The gift of art is always enjoyed!

It's time to start thinking about Christmas gift giving!

It's a wonderful time of the year and as we remember our Savior during this Christmas season, what would be a better gift that uplifting images of Him for you to enjoy year round?  The gift of fine art is never returned or unappreciated, and if you're not sure of which image to give, you can always gift the "Gift of Art" certificate, now available in our store!  

Don't forget! Shipping is free! And we would be happy to ship directly to the gift recipient as well! See how easy Christmas gift giving can be?

 

 

New piece titled, "Messiah in America" unveiled as a part of a worldwide effort.

Howard was actually commissioned to do this piece for another purpose...we will post about that in the next couple of weeks. But we were approached by Seth Adams Smith, who is so very talented, and who knew that Howard was working on this piece at the time, and he wanted to be able to use this image for a very special project he was working on.  The project is a Book of Mormon challenge and you can learn more about it here. The video is a very powerful testimony of Christ and the Book of Mormon. Feel free to share!  Prints will soon be available in the store as well!

 

 

 

Come join us for a special "unveiling" of a new image!

If you are going to be in Utah August 15th through 19th you should come stop by Brigham Young University and see us at the bookstore. Howard will be signing and selling prints. Wednesday the 17th we will be unveiling a new image never before seen! Meet us on the third floor of the bookstore at noon to be the first to see this amazing new image! Prints of the new image will be available! We look forward to seeing you there!

Put these on your calendar and plan to come meet Howard!

It's going to be a busy end of the year... Howard will be making a few different stops with his art and to meet you and sign prints. Be sure to stop by and say hi! And bring a friend or two!  

If you will be at Education Week August 15-19... come see us (and buy some Howard Lyon prints!) at the BYU bookstore booths! Howard will be there and signing prints.

 

We will be hosting a open house and possible some home sales in Arizona in September. If you are interested in hosting a home sale drop us a e-mail: fineart@howardlyon.com The host of these sales earns a percentage of sales to be applied to their own purchases!

 

If you're going to be in Utah for Conference weekend in October... come visit us, buy some art, and Howard will be there to sign it at the Deseret Book Flagship store right across the street from Temple Square, he will be doing a lunch and learn both Friday and Saturday! He will be painting and talking about his art.

 

Stay posted, subscribe so you can be the first to know when he will be in your area!

Life Painting at Grand Central Academy of Art

This last summer, I was able to travel to New York and study for a month at the Grand Central Academy.  It was a wonderful experience.  I took classes from Scott Waddell and Will St. John, two immensely talented artists. Below are two of the studies that I did while I was there.  The model was John Forkner.  If you have been to the GCA blog, you have seen him before.  He is in excellent shape and has a beard to end all beards.  It was just getting started in these painting.  If you are an artist in NY, track John down and hire him, he is a great guy and model.

I attended the GCA because I felt that their approach is most inline with the artists who I have admired for so many years, namely Bouguereau, Gerome and Tadema.  It was a challenge to take the time off from work, but it was so worth it.

It isn’t always easy to get out of your normal routine and do studies, but I highly recommend it.  I made new friends, learned some new things and reinforced some principles.  I find myself thinking about the experience almost every day and it added a little more fuel to fire.  Now to figure out how to get back to Florence, Italy…
