There is a trail that leads to 4-Mile Falls, north of Pagosa Springs in southwest Colorado. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen, and I loved hiking that path when I lived there. The locals call that area “God’s Country” (as if God would only hang out in one area, but, whatever). Looking over some of the photos I took on a particular trip, I rolled that concept around in my head. Nearby was my then infant son, playing on the ground. Fascinated and completely enthralled with whatever it was he was doing. Eureka! I could finally go to bed with the idea for my next painting completed


Paul Bond’s award-winning oil paintings live in the spaces between dreaming and reality.

Born in 1964 in Guadalajara, Mexico, he draws from the Latin American genre of Magic Realism where symbolic and fantastic elements blend with realistic atmospheres, unveiling a world where anything is possible. His paintings merge symbolic, surreal and fantastic elements with realistic atmospheres to unveil a world where everything is possible. He often refers to then as “fairy tales for adults”. By merging and altering familiar objects –mixed with equal parts whimsy, wonder and mysticism – Bond’s works delight the imagination and stir the soul.

Bond’s award-winning art has been featured in galleries and museums, including the Gateway Museum in Farmington, NM and the San Diego Art Institute. His paintings are now in private collections throughout the US and worldwide. Corporate collections include Fox, Warner Bros and NBC Studios, Royal Caribbean International, Scripps Hospital, Marriott Hotels, Hotel EMC2, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.

Bond currently divides his time between homes in Southern California and Costa Rica, along with his wife, Life/Business Coach and Transformational Consultant Donna Bond.
