I love the amount of fine detail that Gary packs into each of his works. Whether he’s painting a detailed scene with multiple figures, or a focused still-life, there’s an emphasis on form, material, and texture that creates a very realistic feeling for each painting. Many of the artist’s still-life works remind of pieces by Robert W. H. McCoy, another artist with a love for Western aesthetics.

Gary’s portfolio also includes a selection of older works that focus on contemporary landscapes and imagery from the local environment. These works demonstrate the flexibility of Gary’s painting skill, and his ability to tailor his style to suit different subjects.
