Michael Truly is a Dallas artist who focused on his artistic gifts from very early childhood, eventually leading to his bachelor of arts degree (University of Oklahoma, 1958) and on throughout his long career as a painter. He has worked in a variety of media in commercial art, mural painting, serigraphy, as well as teaching painting. He continued to study privately with various painters in Dallas, in most recent years with the prominent Liz Richardson. Mike’s paintings are in private collections in Dallas and other Texas cities, as well as on the West Coast, and his work has regularly appeared in the Dallas Museum of Art Staff Art Show since 2006. Just as his devotion to art has characterized Mike throughout his life, so has the playful humor that has sometimes emerged, for example, in his small whimsical copies of historic paintings, with images of himself posed in a place of the original subject (imagine the Abduction of Europa replaced by the Abduction of Michael).
