New Work

Tad Cheyenne Schutt is the country's preeminent watercolor painter. Her paintings are brilliant and clean with crisp color and vibrant light.

"The Beast and Baby Rags"
20x24" watercolor


"Sterling"
21x29" watercolor

Tad's 20 year career takes us on a tour of her unique vision of the world, from her rodeo art in the early 1980s to backroads less traveled--old forts and ghost towns and fading neon. Her brush has captured Vermont sun porches filled with flowers and light and the Southwest full of chile peppers and cowboy roadside souvenirs..

Tad's watercolor paintings are meticulously crafted in what is known as photo realism. Done in transparent watercolors-- where no white paint is used, only the white of the paper--they truly spectacular works of fine art. The curator of the Laguna, California Fine Art Museum noted she had "incredible technical virtuosity".
