An amazing canvas by Jesse Reno, entitled "Feral Boy", illustrates the struggle between this almost blind self-taught artist, who wants to paint his own reality, and a greedy collector (depicted with the crown) who tries to dictate output and control the market. This is not an uncommon dilemma, and it takes a very strong artist to resist. Here Jesse portrays his internal strength and resolve with a beautifully crafted bull. The colors are soft and painterly, but the emotion is strong.

Nice to see Jesse on your blog. I had a two man show with him last year at the Pi Gallery in Kansas City. Jesse's canvas's are on the walls, on the bottom picture. These photo's were taken by Pi. I have some somewhere where you can actually see his work, maybe I'll find one and post it here.
That is a beautiful painting. I love the balance of the composition and the surprising use of color. Bravo
