While working with National Geographic, says John Buxton, I learned their philosophy - make it correct for all time. I like that. After being a successful illustrator for over thirty years, I kindled a latent admiration for going that extra mile. I apply this approach to painting the young America of the 18th century.Collectors have come to expect nothing less from John. Such a trust is evidenced when a collector at an art show spotted a small drawing in John's sketch pad and commissioned a painting on the spot. From a simple black and white line drawing of a lone figure, John has created an intimate expression of this Native American's respect and harmony for the land.
