Larry Moore paints for the most part outdoors, or ‘plein air’ as it is called in French. He has been painting since the mid-1980’s and in his own words ‘have only recently started to feel like I am in the early stages of figuring it out. It is a lifelong journey, this figuring it out thing.’ Larry’s background is in illustration where he has worked in almost every imaginable medium and style with the possible exceptions of egg tempera… and marble! He has a huge passion for nature, having grown up on a river next to the ocean with only islands and wildlife behind his house. Painting the great outdoors is Larry’s way of giving homage to nature and perhaps being able to give the viewers of his paintings a reminder of what was and what could still be.
Larry has been the recipient of numerous top awards in art shows and plein air competitions from the mid-1990’s to the present in places as diverse as Maui, HI, Easton, MD, Carmel, Monterey and Laguna, CA and Bucks County, PA. He has won the Society of Illustrators, NY Gold Medal. His work has been featured in Plein Air Magazine, American Artist Workshop Magazine, and American Art Collector.
