Eldon Robert Walls
Western artist Eldon Walls paints western art, cowboy paintings and cartoons. (And much more!!)
His preference has always been working with oils on canvas, painting horses and farm life into landscapes of the mountains and prairies where he was raised.
He was born and raised on a farm in the 30’s near Ardenode, Alberta, Canada, some forty miles north east of Calgary. “The cowboy part of me, limited though it may be, comes from my youth, getting around was done on horseback and not in ‘fancy’ cars.”
Painting large murals on inside and outside walls has become a specialty, mostly in the last twelve years. Beginning at the Toys R Us, Market Mall in 1986 in Calgary, then in 1987 at the Strathmore Legion to Western R.V.’s four locations, to Calgary, Trochu, Elnora and Coronation, accomplishing over 12,000 square feet.
In 2000, he became a member of a group of artists known as the “Cowboy Cartoonists International Inc.” (C.C.I) Which then consisted of a membership of fourteen Americans and four Canadians.
The artwork of Eldon Walls has been shown in many central and southern Alberta art shows as well as in various art galleries located in Strathmore, LaFlamme Galleries in Calgary, Heritage Western Center in Cochrane and ‘Gallery on Main’ in Lacombe. Also in C.C.I. shows that are held in U.S. locations, Sandpoint Idaho, Elensburg Washington, and at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas in December 2005.
