Greg Autry is a Painter, who explores light, color, and the `amazement’ of emotional tone, captured in oil paints. Be it painting in traditional Plein Air (outdoors), or working in the studio, Greg seeks to capture fleeting moments in time, and to explore the nature of what people see, and how that vision creates an emotional response. Whether it be subtle muted tones, or vivid colors, as a representational rendering, or loosely captured in strong brush strokes of paint. For Greg, Art must evoke an emotional response and speak to the soul. And it must tell a story…

» I met John Eagle around 1995, who was teaching a Plein Air painting class at Laguna College of Art and Design. It was John Eagle, whom I consider a friend and my mentor, who encouraged me and motivated me to pursue my passion for art and painting. « Greg Autry
