Conversations with Theodore Waddell - Part One by Victoria Taylor-Gore.
Part One: Theodore Waddell's early childhood experiences that led him to be an artist, and how he discovered his passion for art.
First part of the Theodore Waddell interview I shot with Brian Nixon at the Amarillo Museum of Art. There are four more parts.
This interview is in conjunction with Waddell's exhibition at the Amarillo Museum of Art - Theodore Waddell: For Love of the Horse from May 19 - August 5, 2012 (amarilloart.org/index.php?module=article&id=144).
Waddell is a wonderful artist, and a man that reflects his rich and varied life experiences in his work. Waddell's work spans the gap between Abstract Expressionism and Western Art, and appeals to a large audience of viewers. He is a captivating storyteller, and by listening to the inspiration behind his work, we see his work on a deeper level and experience an emotional bond to his images.
