***************
Fred Lucas: Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in Tacoma, Washington, Fred Lucas is a painter of western subjects who works in a style and method of the Old Dutch Masters. His painting process involves applying thin, graduated layers of the finest oil colors upon finely woven Belgian linen canvas prepared with absorbent white lead.

Lucas spent a vigorous boyhood of many outdoor activities. His artistic talent was encouraged by his father who placed him at age nine in the tutorship of a skilled artist. Later Lucas attended the Famous Artists Schools in Westport, Connecticut, and the University of Southern Mississippi.

While living in Las Vegas, Nevada and then the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico, he continued his interest in the works of master painters, western life and literature. By 1970, he determined to be a full-time artist, and in 1975, he settled in Prescott, Arizona.
