Welcome to my gallery of original landscape oil paintings, fine art prints and gifts. Take a stroll into my new series "Rural Americana" to a slower time when life was simpler. A timeless world of rolling hills, patchwork farms; where you can almost smell the fresh air and fresh cut hay and hear the sounds of nature. I strive to create an enchanting world in my folk art style, with a nostalgic feel of good times past.

Awards
July 2014- Award of Excellence and two Special Recognition awards in the 16th Annual Contemporary Juried Online International Art Exhibition sponsored by Upstream People Gallery. Juror: Laurence Bradshaw, Professor of Art & Art History at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. Juror's Statement: WALT CURLEE of Phenix City, Alabama is one of the favorite artists in the show. His careful handling of farm scenery is spectacular. The sentiment felt in "Baling The Hay" is precise and engaging as it is developed on the rolling hills of the farmland. The overall green and gold warmth gives the scene a harmonious setting. Conversely, his "Small Town Winter Landscape" is definitely successful in terms of showing the chill in the air. The exquisite detailing of the tree bark down to the gray squirrel on the tree to the tracks of the rabbit and the glowing sky makes for an outstanding piece. And "Horn Of Plenty" is quite marvelous with all the fine details in all the many fruits, vegetables and grains, the rows of trees and plants and the wonderful perspective altogether with the cumulous cloud formations, all showing his outstanding skill and understanding of visual virtuosity.

June 2014 - 1st Place in Oil Category, LCAA National Juried Exhibition, sponsored by The Lancaster County Art Association, Strasburg, Pennsylvania. Juror: Lilly Wel.

May 2014 - Narrative Excellence Award, On-Line International Spring 2014
sponsored by The National Oil And Acrylic Painters Society.

January 2014 - 1st Place, Four Points Contemporary 2nd Bi-annual Competition. Jurier: Reginald Charles Adams, Executive Director at Museum of Cultural Arts Houston.

July 2013- Award of Excellence and three Special Recognition awards in the 15th Annual Landscape Juried Online International Art Exhibition sponsered by Upstream People Gallery. Juror: Laurence Bradshaw, Professor of Art & Art History at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. Juror's Statement: WALT CURLEE of Phenix City, Alabama is tremendously favored with a talent that shines through in every artist way. His "Autumn Apple Harvest" is a delight in its perfection of perfectly red apples, perfectly fruitful trees and even down to the perfect grass and the little creatures in the foreground. And "Blackberry Patch Rural Farm Landscape" is another magnificent masterpiece with awesome detailing and a full range of primary and secondary colors. The idea that all aspects of the farm is doing exactly what it is suppose to do. Also, "Deer In The High Meadow" is another show-stopper with such visual precision staged in an idealized setting with an awesome sense of perspective. And with the activity of shucking corn in an calming environment with grazing cows on the hills he presents "Shucking And Storing The Corn In The Corncrib". This scene should receive high praise for Nebraskan Cornhuskers.
