Known for his paintings of cattle, cowboys, rodeo arenas, and ranch life executed with an unique aerial perspective and sun-drenched hues, Howard Post is an impressionist who portrays the contemporary West in a modern fashion. Howard Post, a native Arizonan, was born and raised on a ranch near Tucson. Not surprisingly, he gravitated toward the life of a cowboy. The family ranch raised rodeo stock, and as Howard Post gained experience, he started to enter rodeo competitions. In time, he became an Arizona High School All-Round Rodeo Champion, a member of the University of Arizona rodeo team, and eventually, a competitor with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. After Howard Post completed bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in fine art at the University of Arizona, he taught there for two years.
