About Daniel Gonzalez    
Born in Arizona, I spent most of my adolescence on a ranch in Double Adobe near the US/Mexico border. My father’s job as a rancher and conservationist took my family from Virginia to California and places in between. The time I spent on the Navajo Reservation as a boy left a strong impression and is often a source of inspiration for my work. I enjoyed drawing as long as I can remember. I now work predominantly as an oil painter, but I still like to explore other mediums like gouache, pastel, and clay. I enjoy teaching art and have taught all ages and many different mediums. I also continue to further hone my own skills taking classes when I can. Art is my passion. It is the way I live my life and how I see the world. I currently work in three main genres: Western, Figurative/Classical Portraiture, and a contemporary style of Mexican folk art. Often my artwork is narrative in style - depicting people and places that I know - other times the narrative takes on a more dream-like form.
