Autumn Light by Joe Garcia 12×16″ Oil
Joe Garcia. Fred and I met him about a month ago at an art walk in Charleston. (Joe shows locally at Horton Hayes Fine Art). What a nice guy, and a very talented artist. He captured the autumn light on this marsh so perfectly. I love that golden glow that it can have. The subtle ripples in the water and those wonderful trees are my favorite parts!
Be sure to look for Joe if you are attending Southeastern Wildlife Exposition here in Charleston, SC. SEWE is a huge event that fills the city to capacity year after year. This event runs from February 12-14, 2015! Just look at the list of events!
Read a blip about Joe, from his website:
Joe earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an advertising/illustration emphasis from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for 13 years then left the commercial field to focus full time on the fine art side of his career.
Today Joe continues to paint in oil or watercolor, and emphasizes composition, value and spontaneity in each medium. His works reflect his love of nature in landscapes, birds, mammals and a variety of other themes on location and in the studio. Garcia shows in exhibitions across the country, and his original paintings and limited edition prints may be found in galleries and private collections throughout the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Europe.
Joe’s art has appeared in numerous magazines, including Southwest Art, The Artist Magazine, Wildlife Art, and Watercolor Magic. North Light produced his books, Mastering the Watercolor Wash and the Watercolor Bible, and included his art in several other publications.
