Herb Booth, POPPING OUT
Herb Booth has wedded his artistic skills with decades of experience as a naturalist and hunter. Today he is one of the best known and most sought after painters of sporting and wildlife scenes in Texas. Collectors of sporting art throughout the country also know and value his work. Booth’s work has appeared in many of the nationally known sporting magazines. He has designed eleven conservation stamp prints. He is best known for his watercolor paintings, but he also does original graphics.
Author Michael McIntosh notes: “It is a peculiar fact of sporting art it cannot be successfully faked. A sporting scene, if it aspires to any degree of acceptance, must only reflect genuine experience on the artist’s part but must also evoke the memory and feeling of similar experience in the viewer.” In Booth’s art the sense of authenticity and depth of personal experience are instantly recognizable.
For the past twenty years he has specialized in personalized sporting scenes. His painting of families hunting or fishing together have become instant family heirlooms for the people who buy them.
