Artist Glenn Murray in front of his award winning painting "The Blue Diner"

When I was young, I would spend hours looking at the way light and shadow played upon various objects. This evolved into my love of color and function. If you can recall a feeling from viewing my painting, then I have done my job! Looking at my images I imagine stories from different perspectives. 

I take great care to ensure the highest quality craftsmanship and materials building from building my canvas all the way throughout the painting. My technique is to use paint layering. I start with the background and then build up the layers to enhance the image. This allows the whole painting to develop over several days for each layer’s drying time.
