things haven't changed too much as far as Howard Rogers' subjects are concerned.  As a young boy, he drew horses and pretty girls.  Today, some 50 years later, those two subjects remain pretty much at the center of his work, although he has added a variety of others. 

Rogers has been interested in art since he was a child.  When he was in high school, he worked as an apprentice to a sign painter and later ran a chain of supermarket sign shops in San Diego.   After missing the Olympics in 1956, he went to art school on the G.I. Bill, enrolling at Art Center in Los Angeles.  He graduated with distinction in advertising illustration and headed for Detroit, where for the next ten years, he worked for several art studios handling automobile accounts.

Later, doing his own free-lance illustration work, his projects included Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, Readers Digest, Family Circle, Woman's Day, Cosmopolitan, and many others.  "All I dealt with were beautiful people," he says.  "Even in Detroit, every person you painted near a car had to be beautiful.  In New York, I started doing romance book covers, which was a natural subject for me, and I enjoyed it."  But after five years of this, he was ready to move on.

In 1980, he picked up a paint brush, dipped into the oils, and did a painting.  The rest is history.  Rogers has completed a set of collector plates of scenes from "Gone With the Wind".  He has been guest teacher at Scottsdale Artists School, and has more than his share of artistic successes.  His work has been on the cover of Art of the West three times in recent years, along with features articles.
