Daniel Corey. This guy has a way with paint. I love his color palette. I’ve been following Dan’s work since 2009, right before he left to participate in the Monhegan Artist Residency. A nicer guy does not exist. And… talented, wow! Dan is from Maine, and many of his paintings depict what he sees every day.
Summertime is a fabulous painting with luscious brush strokes and buttery oil paint. There is movement, life and you can feel the heat. Everyone is in their own little world. Some are basking in the sun, others under an umbrella with hat and sunglasses. Coolers filled to provide comfort from he sun with treats and ice cold drinks.
Dan’s painting do more than show a scene, they bring back good memories. That’s powerful!

My name is Daniel Corey, I am a traditional painter rooted in the aesthetic values of the Ashcan school and the French impressionists. Inspired by light quality, color harmony and abstract shapes, my paintings are created from direct observation and memory. I enjoy the challenge of painting nontraditional views and subjects, and the views that make Maine, Maine.
