Jack Arnold’s reverence for nature was nurtured as he grew up on a Baxter County Farm. At about five years of age, Arnold began illustrating letters he wrote to his sister, a teacher. At 10 years old, he received a paint-by-numbers oil set; after painting one canvas by the numbers, he determined to fill the remaining canvases with his own creations.

Arnold holds several degrees in biology and minored in art and sociology.

"I paint mostly in oils," says Arnold, "until the image matches the way my mind thinks it should look; then it is finished." In his sculptures, Arnold focuses on wildlife and Native American subjects, working with bronze, clay and carved wood. Most of his current work is being done in oil paintings of landscapes, and he badly needs to reduce his inventory. Therefore, for this TAO exhibit, some prices are negotiable.

Arnold’s art may be purchased at 3296 West Road in Mountain Home. He may be contacted at (870) 430-5287 or jarnold@centurytel.net.
