"Proving that everyday, ordinary sights and objects are the icons that comprise the heart and soul of our lives is painter Paul Milosevich's strength."—Santa Fe New Mexican
Under Milosevich's extraordinary eye and hand, the workworn objects and everyday heroes of his beloved landscape become realistic paintings that tell the story of life in West Texas. In this 30-year retrospective, Sasser traces the various themes of Milosevich's work and provides biographical insights into the artist's development of West Texas Realism.

This 30-year retrospective of realist painter Milosevich's career features landscapes, people and everyday objects of the Southwest. Texas art teacher and freelance writer Sasser presents a trite but affectionate text that frequently quotes Milosevich as it traces his artistic growth. At their most pedestrian, the paintings here exhibit greeting-card sentimentality and predictable color schemes; at their best, they offer agreeably kitschy Americana. Milosevich's depictions of cowboys and Pueblo Indians as well as his paintings of Santa Fe are notable for their vivid colors, while his portraits of friends and country-western performers are skillful though devoid of background detail. This unpretentious, pragmatic collection extols leisurely living in Colorado, Texas and New Mexico.
