Larry Preston Artist Statement
 
I paint what I find beautiful.  I do not paint to be relevant, for an audience or make any statement other than the beauty to be found in the objects I choose to paint.  If the viewer chooses to attach some meaning to my work, that would be their prerogative.   I find that, in this modern world, there is too little observance of the beauty in our surroundings.   The real importance in our lives.  I paint to remind myself what I find important and beautiful and to experience the process of painting my chosen object.  I paint for myself and the process.  I am very pleased that my work resonates with people.

Larry Prestonís work has won numerous national awards including several from The Artistís Magazine, The Art Calendar and many juried art exhibits and competitions.  He has [...]
