“When I first get an idea for a painting, I usually know it’s worth pursuing if the title comes with it quickly. I find endless fascination with the world that children create in their imaginations. When I set little Madison on the floor to explore the world of baking and told her she could play with the flour, I knew magic would happen. Of course, I will be finding flour residue in my studio for years to come. It was an epic mess but it brought me great inspiration”.

Two Prix De West Purchase Awards and Five Patron’s Choice awards (from The Master’s of the American West) would be the earmark of an impressive career for any artist. That Morgan Weistling has accomplished this feat in just over a ten year period is a stunning achievement and testimony to the artist’s commitment to perfection. Flour Child is prime example of why Morgan is held in such high regard. Collector’s bid furiously over this original at this year’s Coeur D’Alene Auction. Regarded as one of the finest figurative painters today, his combination of technical prowess and acuity for depicting the nuances of the human spirit are what set him apart from others. more
