BIOGRAPHY:
Father of Texas artists Martin and Stylle Read, Sleepy Read was based in Cleburn, Texas. Upon his death, both sons commented on his career: From traveling up and down the east coast during summers attending art sales to serving as artist in residence at Southwestern Adventist University and teaching art in Johnson County schools, Sleepy Read was a man of many talents and passions, his sons said."Dad painted more bluebonnet scenes than anything because that's what sold and what people wanted," Martin Read said. "But I remember one lady being impressed by the things he did, everything from spin art to collage stuff. He was just all over the map artistically.Sleepy Read agreed. "People liked my work," Read told Larue Barnes in a 2007 Times-Review article. "I found I could make a lot more money painting pictures that I could at my old job." Read went on to see his work shown nationwide and many of his paintings and sculptures found homes in public buildings, private homes and galleries across America and Europe including several locations in his town of Keene and throughout Johnson County."We have a Sleepy Read painting in nearly every building on Southwestern Adventist University's campus including two large commissioned pieces in our Hopps Museum and in the cafeteria," said Dale Hainey, director of SWAU's physical plant. "He and his son Martin also did the Three Angels sculpture on the side of our Findley administration Building. He has paintings in most of the schools in the area, so you can see his influence all over our community. I counted his as a good friend for many years. He will be very missed."
