About The One on One

This man anxiously awaits his turn at "One on One"--A beautiful rendering of a moment in time.

About Wilbur Elsea
(1926-2014) In 1990 after a successful career as a Wichita advertising executive, Wilbur audited a painting class at Wichita State University.  This second career yielded over 600 paintings, many in watercolor.  His chosen expression paired realism with a level of sentimentalism.  Elsea grew to average twelve exhibitions per year.  

Elsea's claim to fame was his successful design of a mascot for Wichita State University--the WuShock--a gruff-faced shock of wheat, complete with arms and legs.
