Robert Shepherd Painting of Paradise Canyon in Southern Utah near St. George in personal art collection of Roland L. Lee

Robert Shepherd was one of my most revered mentors when I began painting. He passed away many years ago but I was fortunate to inherit his easel, taboret, and many of his personal art books. After selling my first gallery painting in 1980 I purchased one of Robert Shepherd’s paintings with the proceeds — and I still had to make time payments on it. But it hangs in my home proudly.

Today I was fortunate to acquire another full sheet original watercolor painting by Robert Shepherd from one of his major collectors and personal friends. I am thrilled with my new acquisition!

    It might be the same artist. Were they in California at the time?

    Robert L. Shepherd was my great-uncle and we have several of his pieces in our home. Since his passing I've not been able to find places to purchase his work; only been able to see it at museums or in civic buildings. It's a beautiful piece.

    I have an original pencil sketch and water color painting by a Robert L. Shepherd. I am wondering if this is the artist who was your mentor. Mr. Shepherd knew my parents and gave it to them as a wedding gift in 1950.
