Ted Houston Art 
Ted Houston is an artist working in several media including oil painting, water color, drawing, and printmaking. A modern renaissance man, Ted started his study of life drawing at the Philadelphia Academy of Art while earning his PhD in Physics at the University of Pennsylvania. On moving to Dallas, he continued his study of life drawing with Roger Winters, and later with Bill Comodor. Ted has also studied painting and printmaking at Brookhaven College for the Arts. His work has won many awards including several best of shows, and has been exhibited in juried shows with the Dallas Business Council for the Arts, the Richardson Civic Art Society, and at the Brookhaven studio gallery. For a while, Ted taught drawing at Ole Podrida. Much of Ted’s work...


Oil I like to use oil paint thinly in a watercolor style, sometimes building up layers while keeping the freshness and gesture of the subject.
Watercolor My love of watercolor probably stems from my mother being a watercolorist. I like the immediacy of the medium with the ability to freely capture a gesture or to render a detail. It is a delight to see the flow of color on the paper.
Prints My main interest in printmaking is to explore form and color as enabled by the medium, rather than to run multiple copies of the same image. Thus, while I have run some editions, most of my prints are monotypes (a single image) or mono prints (unique prints formed from a common image base, e.g. color variations of a screen print).

Some Recent Work This gallery has selected work completed in the past year.
photography/computer generated art This work is an extension of my painting, continuing a study of time, space, color, and the interaction of abstraction and reality. Some photos are pretty much as taken.
gestures Gestures are my favorite form of art. The gesture is to capture the essence of the subject in an unlabored way, combining freedom with truth. A gesture reveals the handwriting of the artist.
Iris and other flowers I cultivate Iris as a hobby. Naturally enough, I also find the Iris form an interesting subject for paintings and prints. Some of the work is representational while other is more abstract.
Some of my firends Our every day doings are an important part of life. Everyone is significant! I have taken this as a theme for a series of paintings.
