Joe Friddle. A transplanted Texan for almost 40 years, Joe was raised on the top of the last mountain in the Smoky Mountain Range in Birmingham, Alabama. Throughout his life Joe has sought ways to share his love for wildlife, the great outdoors, and the importance of strong grass root characters stemming from rural Texas. Beginning with stylized pencil drawings and portraits and now exploring the freedom of watercolor adds to the nature, Joe incorporates the mediums to join the outdoors and remembrance of time gone by. Whether portraits of old homesteads, historic building structures, still life or other specific portrait requests, there is always a story to tell. Locally his works can be found at several galleries throughout Texas.
