In the past, Davidson worked as a portrait artist at Disneyland and Universal studios but now the Orange County, Calif., native says he is sick of being in the big city and chose Tombstone to get away from the hectic lifestyle.
“I like it here and I’ll probably stay for a while and see where it goes,” said Davidson. “It’s a nice place to be; people are very friendly.”
When a visitor first walks into the Red Roan Gallery there’s no mistaking the style of his work. Davidson is a portrait artist. Large black and white airbrushed paintings are showcased along the walls featuring icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. It’s not all celebrities though. Davidson has several southwest-style portraits of cowboys and Indians. According to Randy Davis, owner of the Big Iron Shooting Gallery adjacent to the gallery, his western art has been popular among Tombstone locals.
However, tattoo artists are among his largest followers. Several online tattoo forums reference his book, “The Red Book,” and Davidson says it is one of his most popular items. “I mostly sell to other artists [including tattoo artists] and they use my stuff to learn from,” said Davidson. His main focus now is working on completing portraits to ultimately create more compilation books of his artwork to sell.
It’s not about the money for Davidson though. His new endeavors in Tombstone were sparked by the want to downsize and escape from the high stress and commotion of Los Angeles. He also grew up with horses and wanted to move to a small town where he could own horses and go riding often.
Davidson, 51, settled on Tombstone after several visits, one involving a stranger helping to fix his broken van. “I said, ‘Well at least there’s one nice guy in this town.’”
Earlier this year, Tombstone became his home.
“I want to focus on my books, I decided to make a lot less money and be a lot happier,” said Davidson. “I’m looking for doing something with my life, opposed to just financial. I don’t care as much about the money as I used to.”
Late at night you may find Davidson burning the midnight oil in his gallery, but he says the door is always open.
Allan Davidson’s Red Roan Gallery, 110 S. 4th St., is open from “from when I wake up ‘till when I fall,’” said Davidson. “If I’m awake the door is always open.”
