The gallery I was exhibiting in is now closed. All my work is now on exhibit in my studio home. Visitors welcome.

Some of these paintings have PayPal buttons on them which would allow you to purchase online, after which the art would be shipped to you.

However, I have found that the buttons don't always work, so my e-mail address is listed, and you can contact me directly.

All art work and books can be shipped.

Thanks for checking out SAM•U•L's blog.

About Me

My photo
Sam Richardson, aka SAM•U•L, is a Taos-based artist and writer.

His art is displayed in a number of venues and he is a free-lance feature writer for publications in New Mexico and Texas. He has taught journalism for The University of New Mexico and taught art at Austin Community College.

He is also known as a storyteller and occasionally does public performances in Taos. Among his topics is presidential humor.

Sam’s last stop before moving to Taos a number of years ago was the Big Bend of Texas where he edited newspapers, was a contributor to state dailies, exhibited in regional art galleries, and operated his own guide service and tour company, running wilderness tours in the Big Bend and into old Mexico.

He has published several books including "Twelve Lessons of the Desert," "My LIttle Book of Caricatures," "Football, Basketball, Baseball: Drawings and Sketches," and "Taoseños, Terlinguaseños and other Outlaws I've drawn.".
