Garry Colby
Cumming, Georgia

Garry Colby started painting in 2012 when he retired from a long career in commercial art. Faced with the extra time to pursue what interested him most, Garry choose to paint. His scenes are romantic representations of the everyday, such as the fa├žade of a quaint cottage, a sunny garden, or a rainy street. Besides the tender subject matter, it is his wonderful sense of light that creates the sentimental mood in the work. Soft, filtered light coats the landscapes and buildings, bringing the viewer into the warmth of the scene. The work feels very measured and contemplated, but also full of passion, as if each piece is in pursuit of the joy of painting and the representation of natural beauty.
