Storytelling with Beautiful Illustrations

Mr. Trump’s Wild Ride

Powered by xenophobia, religiosity, and the interests of the 1%, Trump drives the GOP jalopy hard to the right. Swilling black gold, drunk on power, he salaciously leers at Lady Liberty, and she is having none of that! He remains unaware that the sword of Justice is swiftly catching up. #Resist.

Luke Buck, landscapes in acrylic, watercolor and gouache
Luke Buck is an Indiana native who paints crisp, bright landscapes in acrylic, watercolor and gouache.

In addition to painting subjects in his home state, Buck is working on a project to paint in every state of the union.

You will find both original paintings and limited edition reproductions on his website.

Many of his paintings have a compositional device in which the primary image is in a crisp rectangle, created by setting off the image with tape, from which key elements extend outside of that area, often with the addition of drip effects at the bottom.

Buck has a step-through demonstration of his process here. He also conducts workshops, demonstrations and art talks, both in Indiana and other states.

His website also has a listing of shows and plein air events in which he is participating.
