Announcement    Nack's seemingly whimsical depictions of animals, including his ongoing reindeer series, has resulted in the creation of many hundreds of paintings. Using layers of oil paint, varnishes and glazes Nack's work has a depth of underpainting and refined abandon that identifies his work texturally. By creating this body of work, Nack has also created gigantic family of animal paintings (some people too). These images offer emotions and expressions that either reflect or at times mirror or offer a respite from world events. Viewed historically, it appears Nack's response to a world in turmoil is to paint happy animals, conversely, when the world (or his own life) seems to be doing OK the images become morose disenchanted or forlorn.

Video summary: The night before the opening, at 3:37 am. I was so tired, but had to get ready for the big opening!

100% Reindeer Art Show - the 2018 herd is here now!

Since 1997 I have painted about 70 Reindeer paintings a year. Each small painting is elegantly framed, created with oil paint on canvas.

The annual Brad Nack 100% Reindeer art show takes place every year in Santa Barbara at a small local Restaurant call Roy, which features a back room that works well for displaying art.

Also, I have had Reindeer Art shows in far flung locals including NYC, Los Angeles, Portland, Tulsa, London, New Haven, Miami, and Marco Island to mention a few. Now, I am bringing some of my best reindeer paintings, vintage reindeer paintings, and even some stragglers to Etsy.

Thanks for checking out the herd, some still need to find homes. Each one is an original. I work on them throughout the year and I currently have over 300 that are in progress. I will see which new ones are finished in time for the next show, but meanwhile, there are a number to choose from here and now is a good time to start your collection.

Take a reindeer home for the holidays.
