Award-winning painter and Cowboy Artist of America Martin Grelle not only visually portrays traditions, culture, and historic narratives, but also embodies a richer context of emotion blended with storytelling of the American West. In this presentation he reveals his decision-making process for selecting subject matter, developing the narrative aspects of each piece, and his approach to titling paintings to enhance their storytelling quality.
