Aloft by Larry Moore 30×40″ Oil
Larry Moore. A wonderfully versatile painter who is as charismatic as he is talented. I saw this painting Aloft in person and let me tell you… WOW! I love everything about it. First of all the subject matter is unexpected. I love paintings with an abstract quality to them, and this hits the nail on the head. Just look at that brick wall… the sofa… and I know, I know! THE BIRD! Larry’s paintings make me smile. Clever! This painting is available at Horton Hayes Fine Art, here in Charleston, SC.
Plenty of Work To Do 16×20″ Oil
Another great example of Larry’s work (and versatility) is Plenty of Work To Do. Look at all the details that are there yet they’re left to your imagination, aren’t they? That’s fabulous! Instead of painting everything exactly as he see’s it he gives subtle hints as to what it is and your mind fills in the blanks which is so much more interesting than if he were to paint the scene exactly as it was! The colors and shapes are fabulous! This painting is currently in Larry’s studio…
Monhegan by Larry Moore 11×14″ Oil
Ahhhh, Monhegan. Always a favorite. In the distance you see the Island Inn. Another fabulous painting! This one is available at Coco Vivo Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor, ME.
I’ve met Larry a few times and have heard glowing reviews from those who have taken his workshops. Larry is a talented artist and he is hilarious. His workshops will be both informative and a good time. How can you beat that? Check out Larry’s 2016 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE.
For even more information and great stories, check out Larry’s BLOG. I swear I cannot read it without laughing out loud. I personally think Larry should also write a book. What an entertaining read that would be!
Read a bit about Larry, from his website:
I’m an artist and instructor/creative coach. I’ve spent many years painting outdoors, what we call “en plein air”, which is a fancy french term that means “outdoors”. I have a huge passion for nature having grown up on a river right next to the ocean with nothing but islands and wildlife behind my house. My background is in illustration (35 years) where I worked in almost every medium and style you can think of… except maybe egg tempera and marble.
As an instructor, I am taking my years of acquired knowledge from illustration, graphic design, plein air, teaching Critical thinking and the aforemetioned topics and morphing them together in my work and with what I teach. I give people a way to access the creative spirit and broaden not just the way they paint but the way they think.
