Welcome to the Art of
Southwestern, Western and Wildlife Art
In this high
tech world, Manuel Franco strives to keep the old
traditions alive. His subject matter as well as his use of mediums is diverse.
Although his subjects include Westerns,
Native American and Still
Life's, he increasingly concentrates on Southwestern
scenes. Manuel works in oil, pencil, pastel and bronze, but his first choice is
watercolor because this medium lends itself to the fine detail that he puts into his work.
