Larry Maupin, northeast Dallas, Texas Member Since September 2011 Artist Statement For commissions and original paintings contact me at Larry@LarryMaupin.com
MY VISION Our society is often consumed with what's "going viral" and what's the next "big thing." In our rush we often overlook the spectacular beauty of this world that is found only by a slower, more deliberate look - looking with expectant eyes - expecting to find beauty.
As a contemplative photographer and skilled computer craftsman, my desire is to share with you what I have found. With a gift for composition and design, and my newfound love for painting, particularly with encaustic wax pigments, I hope to highlight my discoveries for you. My wish is that you'll pause long enough to find beauty somewhere somehow amid the rush.
MY BACKGROUND I'm a Texan through and through - born and raised in Dallas, Texas. After a stint in the Marines and a side trip to Viet Nam, I married the love of my life and raised three awesome children. Now they are giving us awesome grandchildren! I became a born again Christian in 1983, and I love The Lord. These life experiences have given me a zest for life and an appreciation for each day, particularly the "little things in life." The joy I find in the little things is often expressed in my art. So I encourage you to slow your pace once in awhile and see the things (and the people) you may be missing.
