Greg LaRock, most of you have probably heard of him. His work is fabulous… crisp and clean. His brush strokes are intentional and his light is incredible! The sunlight dances around this painting, so nice! I love the tips of the fence. Brilliant!
I swear I have featured Greg before, but when I checked… I haven’t… I. Am. Slipping. Read on to find out more about Greg…
Just look at this light! A working area that some wouldn’t think would make a great painting actually makes one of the best paintings! It’s when you paint the atypical that magic appears. This is amazing!
Read a blip about Greg from his website:
Greg LaRock’s passion is to capture the outdoor landscape and its ever-changing light and beauty. The challenge of depicting the three-dimensional world onto canvas is a difficult pursuit, but when it all comes together, it is an extremely rewarding experience. “When the gap between believability and painterly expression is merged, I’ve done my job.”
A signature member of AIS, LPAPA and ASMA plus an artist member of the CAC, Greg has won numerous awards for his painting excellence including the $5000 first place/grand prize at the Easton Plein Air event in Maryland and the top purchase prize awards for the Newport Bay Naturalist Mural Competition in California and at the Callaway Gardens Plein Air Show in Georgia. Greg has been juried into four of the Oil Painters of America national shows, awarded a “Jury’s Top 50” at the Greenhouse Gallery’s Salon International twice, was an invited artist seven times to LPAPA’s annual Plein Air Invitational. He has also been featured in Southwest Art’s “Artist to Watch” column and included in Jack Richeson Fine Art Series book “Plein Air New Mexico.”
A sought-after instructor for plein air workshops, he resides in Newport Beach, California with his wife and their two basenjis.
