GC Myers, painter

Premiere Air Date: 
May 26, 2013

Gary Myers paints as GC Myers.  In 1993 while recovering from a fall from a 16 foot ladder,
he began painting with some old brushes from a previous failed attempt.  Suddenly it all made sense to him.  He was able to see color harmony and form better.

Within 3 years he became a full time painter.  He’s able to express human emotion through the landscapes he creates with color, texture and depth. 

His paintings are more about the color and the textures, things other than the red tree.  The red tree is merely an invitation for the viewer to enter the painting.  Viewers can identify themselves as the tree due to it’s position of strength.

Painting is the one thing that he feels completely confident in in his life and that is his real driving force.
