Snow in the Orchard by Gary David Fournier
acrylic on canvas
11 x 14 inches
Artist Statement: Passing a local orchard a couple of years ago this scene caught my eye. Such a stark but beautiful change from spring when green and pink blossoms return. It’s a simple but appealing piece.
Gary’s artistic journey began in High School where he excelled in oils, watercolor and the potter’s wheel. College art was interrupted by Vietnam and 4 years of Naval service, including 2 years of duty in Vietnam. After Vietnam, he married, started a family, went to college, and began a very demanding 40+ year career in the environmental engineering industry working for several global engineering companies.
Gary’s award winning art provides an opportunity to express himself. After many years in all levels of management in the engineering world, being able to express himself offers a relief from the confines of organizational structure and peer pressure. Landscape, winter scenes, animals, boats, lakes & rivers, seascapes, still life and architecture are his typical subjects. Gary prefers impressionism and his own style. Gary studied art while attending Empire State College, SUNY at Plattsburgh NY where his focus was art history, drawing and watercolor. Gary’s art is motivated by a love of nature, color and composition and the creativity that comes from working with paint and canvas.
