Gregory Beise

Welcome. As a painter, light and color fascinate me. Whether it is the long shadows of the afternoon, the florescent glow of the shopping center or the soft room light warming up the face of a loved one, light and color are my constant draw back into the world of painting. No two paintings are started from the same place because no two moments start the same way.

Each body of work found here shows an interest in the way I get to interact with the world. Some works come out of the more traditional genres of painting and some take a more contemporary twist on favorites like landscape and portraiture. Every time I set out to make a painting, I intend to capture a little story about some part of a small corner of the world.
