Gary has dedicated this web portfolio to the memory of Grace Barr and film legend James Stewart for their never-ending support and encouragement . The 15 pages that follow are a small sampling of diverse images available to collectors.
The late actor and highly accomplished painter Anthony Quinn said of Gary's paintings: " his pure honest depth of feeling in his work is only
achieved by a very few in the visual and performing arts.'
Whether it's a landscape, still-life, structural scene, or wildlife, there will never be any mechanical, commercial-similarity from one work to another. Pure master painting ! As did 17th through 19 century painting masters, Gary only uses the three basic primary colors: red, blue and yellow, plus white, to mix all of his colors. Much of the mixing is done directly on the canvas. His first painting award was at age 8 when he received the first place "Gold Key" award in the New York State Scholastic Art And Writing Awards.
Internationally acclaimed for his ability to capture the delicate essence of the Sonoran Desert.
Considered an American Renoir... Gary possesses a pure Midas-touch that creates impressionistic works unequaled today for their soft eloquence, with visual and soulful depth. He emulates no other painter: his visual expression is uniquely his own. Many of his paintings have been acquired by both Hollywood and European royalty.
At solo exhibits, viewers are astonished to see that all paintings belongto just one artist, and not by many others.
A rare talented Renaissance man who can give collectors exactly what they want .... as well as designing and hand-crafting museum framing to harmoniously complement each creation.
