A mid-career retrospective of Gary Reed, Hawai'i's most renowned landscape artist. His oils on canvas of the Islands over the past three decades are beautifully presented in this deluxe 10.5" by 13" book. The story is told in his words ... growing up on a small farm in Woodstock, Illinois ... discovering art in high school ... adventures in art school ... and moving to Hawai'i and starting his career at 22. The focused determination to succeed as an artist rings through these pages, as does Gary's constant honing of technique and exploration of undiscovered--and unspoiled--corners of the Islands to paint. Each image of his paintings (104 were selected) is captioned by the artist as to why he painted it.
The book is fascinating for those who love the Islands, but beyond it offers inspiration to young artists--perhaps still in school--that they CAN carve out a career in art.
With color images on all but two pages. Individually shrinkwrapped, with 4/c dust jacket.

By 4th grade Gary Reed knew he wanted a career as an artist. In high school in his hometown of Woodstock, Illinois, he found a mentor, a young art teacher enthusiastic about immersing students in all facets of the arts. After three years at three different art schools--from Wisconsin to Florida--Gary decided to crate and ship his Triumph Bonneville and fly to Hawai'i. The choice was inspirational, for the ocean, the landscapes and most of all, the people, supplied subject and support. His work, laboriously slow, using tiny brushes, strikes a chord across Hawai'i, and his originals hang in boardrooms, various other editions are everywhere! Long considered Hawai'i's premier landscapist, Gary here explains his passion and his work for the first time.
