Oil & Pastel Paintings

Mike Mahon has been an artist for more than 40 years, putting paint to canvas in vivid and vibrant styles to capture the people and places of the American Southwest.

His colorful oil and pastel paintings have captured the luscious hues of the greater Texas, New Mexico and Santa Fe area, including the rivers, mountains and plains throughout the region. Many of his works, including representative samples and award-winning works, can be seen by clicking HERE.

Portraits are Mahon's specialty. He offers individual, children and family sessions from his Santa Fe studio. While works can be done from photos, on-site sessions are available. Click here for details.

Mahon also holds numerous workshops throughout the country year-round. Each session covers such topics as painting in oils, pastels and acrylics. Mike teaches 3 basic workshops - Mastering the Painting Process, Portrait Painting, and Plein Air Painting. Of course he is happy to customize his workshop for particular needs. His workshops focusing on the Santa Fe Plaza and historic Canyon Road and Taos landscapes are popular annual events.

For more information on purchasing a piece of your own or for custom commissions as well as workshops, email Mahon at art@mmahon.com.
