The Lovers

Several years ago, I saw this picture in a catalog. I was floored by it's romantic quality. I acquired in it porcelian plates and had greeting cards of it framed for hanging in my bathroom as well as many other works of Lee Bogle's Native American collection. It's hard to explain, but his work inspires romantic tendencies within me. Several companies have put many of his pieces into various forms of collections, porclain plates, figures, music boxes, and jewelry - most are retired. I feel fortunate to have many of the collections throughout my home.

The Bradford Exchange put together a porcelain collection set in an unique beautiful frame called the Circle of Life - I'm so in awe of it that when we remodel the bedroom it will be the center piece. The frame is unique in the sense that each porcelain plate can be removed to hang separately, but why would anyone want to?

Lee is a multi-talented artist who I believe has accomplished his task to portray a spirituality to his Native American work. I also have a sense of more. There is a purity of emotion, a love of self and life. He's captured their essence through his vision, and his choice of colors and talent to bring what he sees to the canvas is magnificent.

I'm looking forward to acquiring his new work, especially "The Dreamer" and "Alone With Her Thoughts".

I would like to believe Lee is a special man to know and be around. His sensitivity in the painting of wildlife and women in general show such respect and beauty that I think his art is worthy of sharing.

Celia, you can see them here. From there you can click on other links to see more.

He paints on canvas. It's places like Bradford Exchange, Ashton Drake, The Hamilton Collection who had them done on porcelain and in other forms. I've found them on greeting cards in truck stops during travels.

They really are, Savanna. I'm always moved when I look at them.
