Bob Shepherd
Portraits have always been Bob Shepherd’s greatest joy in his second career – Oil Painting. After retiring from Wrangler Jeans after 30 years in 2011, he’s devoted his full energies to painting.

Shepherd uses the 5 Step Venetian method of painting featuring Drawing, Grisaille, Warm/Cool Stage, many Glazes, and final Varnishing in his work.

He’s won “Best of Show” awards at the Conroe Art League, Woodlands Art League, and Brenham Fine Arts League. He was the past President of The Brenham Fine Arts League, a member of the Portrait Society of America, Artists of Texas, and Contemporary Fine Art International.

Shepherd has two studios, one at his home in Bentwater on Lake Conroe outside Montgomery, Texas and at his summer cabin in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
