Lloyd painted intermittently since childhood without formal training until 2002. In 2002 Lloyd became a student of Richard Skurla, owner of the Silver Maple Gallery & School, Lloyd studied with Richard and other artists for the next nine years. Since 2009 Lloyd directed his focus full time to his art in a studio on his and Teresa's ranch. Lloyd's love of the outdoors and ranch life, has begun to shine in his latest compositions. Raised in a family dedicated to preserving the farm and ranch lifestyle, he presents an insight and appreciation of Western Art on a personal, day to day level. Lloyd & his wife Teresa, in addition to working their own livestock enjoy every opportunity to visit other ranches. They also admire old architecture and visit many historical towns throughout Texas. This not only gives Lloyd the inspiration to paint country scenes, but to paint old structures in different light and angles. The colors and light come to life on canvas with a 3d feel. Lloyd's choice of medium is oils and with a wide variety of brush strokes and palette knife, his goal is to furnish collectors and admirers a tranquil enjoyment of his compositions with an occasional WOW factor. His compositions have been in several juried shows throughout Texas and the USA, in which he has placed Best in Show, first, second, third, Publishers award, honorable mention, artists and peoples choice awards, and Best Depiction of Bosque County .
