Mentor Huebner was a Post Impressionist Painter, a prolific Artist, and spent his entire life creating Art. It was the basic force of his life. He painted for the love of it. He always felt like painting. He was never motivated by any thought of Sales, and he would never sell a painting to anyone he didn't like.

Some collectors succeeded in purchasing his work and some didn't. making money selling his art wasn't important to Mentor. He often said he didn't need to make money selling his art because working in the Motion Picture Industry as a Conceptual Designer, afforded him the luxury of being independent. He'd say, "I'm my own art benefactor."

Mentor's feelings about a potential collector influenced him more than any profit he might gain. A few rejected collectors sometimes became a little upset. When it became clear that Mentor didn't 'feel' like selling a painting to someone, it became a little embarrassing. If they were a professional collector or a personal shopper made little difference to him. Throughout the years, it wasn't unusual for Mentor to freely give away a painting valued at several thousands ~ because he 'felt' like it.

Now that Mentor is physically gone I'm left with an awesome task of trying to 'know' how he would have felt about someone. So I will have to take it personally as Mentor did.

As a Plein Aire Painter, Mentor spent his lifetime painting Landscapes, Seascapes, Cityscapes and Mountain ranges throughout Los Angeles, up and down California, throughout most of the Continental United States, and wherever a movie production company sent him on location.

Mentor was a Master. If someone isn't trained in art, or lacks confidence to make a value evaluation, still upon seeing Mentor's work, they will immediately recognize it to be the work of a Master. There is no question about that fact. It's very clear.

Mentor had a Dual Career. Since he was a young guy he worked in Fine Art and Film Production ~ simultaneously. He created a fantastic body of art work in each. It's estimated he had to have accomplished over 40,000 Drawings in his work on 250 Feature Films.

Over the years despite the casualness of the Studio Production Companies, lost shipments, beak-ins, burglaries, earthquakes, fire and floods ~ incredibly some of the 40,000 drawings survived. They are rare. Some are available for sale as either reproductions in Limited Editions or originals.

Mentor's Motion Picture Production Drawings, not only display a technical exactness, and an expertise necessary to insure a film's visual success, but they are today considered by the Film Industry's experts to be artistically sound and without equal. Much of his work is used to teach film making at prestigious Art Institutes and Film Making Schools. He is an undisputed ICON in his field.

His film drawings have been exhibited as works of art in various important art shows, galleries and museums throughout the nation and Internationally. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Washington, DC Smithsonian Museum have each featured his conceptual drawings and production paintings in Art Exhibits, Nationwide, that ran for several years each tour.

Mentor's paintings have been exhibited in 50 One Man Art Shows, multiple group shows and many tough competitive Exhibitions. His work has won multiple awards and can be found in personal art collections World-Wide.

Each one of his creations, his paintings and drawings, show a quality that clearly indicates they are based on a foundation of traditional classical training. Mentor's intelligent compositions, strong designs, vibrant colors and exciting brushstrokes express the dynamic style and emotion of an artist who worked with a united mind and heart. It is no wonder that Mentor's peers call him, "King of the Illustrators".

Mentor put as much of his soul into his Conceptual Designs for Film Making as he put into his Post Impressionist Paintings. Saying in explanation, "It's how I do it. It's what I am. I can't work any other way. I don't like doing lousy work. If it's for me or for the Studios, or for all other commercial purposes ~ it's all the same. I have to work a certain way."

It's sort of funny now, but a long time ago, a well known producer, seriously asked Mentor to cut down the quality of his work...maybe not work 'As good" , so he could be paid at a lessor rate. He told Mentor, "I don't care if it's not so good."

How outrageous can anyone be? Mentor told him, that he had even a better idea about how he could save money on his pay, "Don't hire me." Of course they all did.

Because of Mentor's overwhelmingly artistic gift, the prints and Giclées, unique reproductions of his original paintings and drawings, do not need to rely upon gimmicks, fake light, a prayer, or his DNA samples to give them value.

Art Lovers, Collectors, long term investors or novice beginners will find his work dependable, satisfying and reassuring, besides being easily accessible to every budget.

To offer opportunity to Mentor's appreciative fans, who wish to collect his Art, I've decided to make a few available for sale. Paintings and Drawings will be for sold as either Prints or Giclees. I don't intend to reproduce them in more than very Limited Edition, World-Wide.

Mentor's Fine Art & Film Art, Paintings & Drawings, Giclées & Prints, Originals & Limited Editions, come in a couple of different sizes and inexpensive prices. Mentor's Art work from his lifetime of productivity, offers everyone incredibly good Art at irresistibly low prices.

Unfortunately for all of us who loved Mentor, there will be no 'new' Mentor Art work in our futures. What we have available is finite. This is it.

For an investor this could be an important consideration as it causes the work to gain in value as the years pass and it becomes increasingly rare. For art lovers, and fans, who had always looked forward to his yearly output ~ it's a very sad fact.

Besides the work displayed on this Site, if you have seen a painting at an exhibit and don't remember where you saw it or even it's title ~ send me a slight description of the location or the scene and I will try to locate it. Or you might ask if there is a painting of a special location that you love. There is a possibility Mentor painted it. If it exists I will happily attempt to make it available.

It's an overwhelming responsibility. I don't intend to handle Mentor's work as manufactured items in a factory. It's very personal for me.

The links below will take you to view additional art work that may or may not be available for purchase. Feel free to make a personal selection and contact me and I'll let you know if it could be available. I might consider reproducing it. No additional charge.

To know whether or not a Production Drawing, from a particular film, listed in the Filmography, might also be available for purchase, either as a Limited Edition or an Original ~ include the film's title with your request for the necessary archival research.

There is no obligation.

Due to the varying sizes and shapes (horizontal or perpendicular) of the original paintings, and due to the different base materials utilized; artist paper, artist boards, masonite and canvas, having been manufactured in either the US or Europe, it is impossible to duplicate the recreations of the original paintings in the exact measurements displayed anywhere on this Web Site or on the order form. From time to time, there may be a variance of an inch or two from any size promised, and if so -- this variance will not constitute an error.

Any slight variances in size can easily be adjusted to fit any frame by a framer.

All art work purchased from this Web Site is to be framed personally by the purchaser.

Standard Delivery requires approximately 12 working business days from the date of purchase.

Many admirer's of Mentor's work have asked if a Print or Giclee of his Self Portrait would ever be for sale. They are enthusiastic about the Self Portrait where Mentor is posed holding a painting brush and wearing an artist's smock and cap.

He was only 29 at the time. I love this portrait.

Some of you may not realize that a Self Portrait is accomplished by an Artist observing himself in a mirror. This method produces a reversal of image. What we see as the Artist's left side is his right and what we see as the Artist's right is really his left.

Mentor looked appealing .. either side.

Several Museums Nationwide have had discussed with me their wish to obtain this particular portrait to include in their Permanent Collection.

The Curator at the Crocker Museum in San Francisco said this Self Portrait of Mentor is dynamic and striking. " It has a certain something. It's unique. "

I have mixed feelings about giving up this portrait. For me the original is priceless.

To me, it is Mentor.

I have thought about their requests for a long time. I'm not sure yet what I will do.

So now, for Mentor's many wonderful Fans, I've decided to offer it as a Special Print.
