The blog for the artist is easy to remember since it has to do with his painting of red trees.                          http://redtreetimes.com/

This artist loves to paint landscapes that deal with the internal shapes and colors of the earth. His use of thick and luscious color makes the viewer feel that here is a painter that loves to have fun while painting. From a design standpoint the works are very unique in that the landscapes show the inner part of the earth. A worm’s eye view from in the dirt no less!

He paints very large up to 60+by 20+ inches and as small as 3 by 5 inches.

From a business standpoint his use of the red tree as his calling card is just great. Say you went to an art show, saw his works, and want to look him up at home. Rather than trying to remember his name, he has a website “red tree times”  the artist paints for the most part red trees then the name of the blog will easily be remembered. A great marketing and business move! Way to go G.C. Myers.

Has a book out titled “In Quiet Places” that has to do with his paintings from 2003 to 2008.

If you enjoy thinking about the inner earth and paintings including it then check out artist Doug Smith who paints a similar idea using farms.

Hope you are inspired to paint an internal landscape scene today!

If you wonder how the artist started building the earth up from several small shapes it was because he would have paint left over at the end of a session. Rather than throw the paint away he would use the color to build all sorts of objects in the dirt such as chairs, tools, or furniture.

Happy painting!
