Greg Dye

Greg's home and studio are nestled in the canyons of Castle Pines in Colorado. He is a self taught artist and has been creating art and illustrations for over thirty five years. His art is a reflection of his passion for the landscape, animals and people of the West.  

 

Greg says, "Once I know where the lighting is coming from the rest is a playground of abstraction.  Using a palette knife I start to apply spontaneous strokes of thick oil paint, one on top of the other.  I do not think about it, I just react to the paint and the emotional energy within myself.  After applying many layers of paint, new shapes, colors and images appear and a buffalo or rugged mountain landscape starts to emerge through the paint.  

 

My goal is to convey constant motion, spiritual energy and show absolute beauty in creating my own personal vision of Colorado and the Southwest".
