Danny Griego
San Diego, California

Danny Griego enjoys infusing his works with a sense of mystery. In his compositions, he hopes to leave room for viewers to use their imagination. He believes "there is even beauty in the mundane." Danny oftentimes works alla prima, which means he completes a painting in one session without waiting for the paint to dry. During his free time, he enjoys working on things that involve a process, and he has been a home brewer since 1989. He currently lives in California. Fun fact: In 1992, he worked on the Olympic games in Barcelona, constructing and painting scenic elements for the opening ceremony. Since he didn't speak Catalan and no one spoke English, his team got jobs done mostly through hand gestures. He got the job by meeting someone at a bar!

Just had an awesome time at the Telluride Plein Air Festival. It was a week long event that featured 31 artists and their plein air paintings in and around Telluride. I made some sales which is great. I was also the winner of the quick draw competition. It's an event where all 31 artists paint in the same vicinity for 2 hours and the public are encouraged to attend and see the artists painting. At the end of 2 hours a winner is chosen and the paintings are auctioned off to the public. I was fortunate enough to sell my quick draw painting as well.

Clever name and cool painting. I get the sense a worker in a vest and hard hat are right around the corner.
