Horse artwork of a seeder at first light
The third in a series of horse artwork
P eople constantly tell me “I could never do what you do; it seems so risky living with no regular paycheck’.
Since I was a road musician in my previous life I’ve never really had a paycheck (being fundamentally unemployable also helps), but I find it odd when people from a farming background say this.
Farmers do huge amounts of blistering work and make punishing investments far before any possible return. The bills come regularly, but months can go by without a dime coming in, and it’s pretty much out of their hands once the seed is in the ground.
That’s guts … and Faith.

Publishing is an art in itself.
And Owen doesn't hand it off: he's there every step of the way.
Digitizing the drawing, pre-press, press checks, printing, curing, trimming and a 20 hour stretch of inspecting, numbering and signing.
You'd think that printing in black and white would be easier, but it's much, much more difficult.
Each of Owen's Limited Edition Prints get two separate printing plates burned, and gets "hit" with ink twice; one for black, one for a special proprietary ink tone that he's come up with himself...

“We have used several dozen of Owen Garratt’s prints for our ‘Oilweek Annual Report Awards’. If you’re looking for that unique gift or award definitely look to Owen’s artwork. We were very pleased with our purchase and we even came in under budget!”
June Warren Publishing Ltd.
"You guys are truly the best. I have been using your prints for awhile now - and my clients absolutely love them. They are a unique housewarming gift that stays with the clients for years! - this combined with your customer service makes this a second to none service!"
"Being in the oil industry I am always trying to find a cost effective give away that will be appreciated and utilized. I have a ton of bad fitting golf shirts and way too many cups and glasses for my cupboards and I know my customers are in the same position. To date we have purchased 24 oilfield pictures for promotional gifts and I know this was a successful purchase when I go into a customer’s office and see your pictures proudly displayed!!
Thank you for making these promotional items affordable and effective for the smaller business."
Terri Lynn Deveau
"We all love that Owen’s set-up allows a small business to have the ability to donate to client’s fundraisers and tournaments. I can’t tell you how many inquiries I've had over the years on Owen’s prints. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!"
