Gary M. Long is an academically trained professional artist based in Long Island, New York who paints in a post impressionistic realistic American style. His subjects range from the classic landscape tradition with figurative representation to formal portraiture.
Painting since his youth, Gary is inspired by the more complex compositional lighting conditions that can be found in nature. He begins each figurative landscape painting "en plein air" and finishes them in his Long Island Studio.
Gary lives in Cutchogue N.Y. on the north fork of Long Island with his wife, who manages the business side of his career including his gallery. He accepts commissioned portraits and sells giclees of his original oil paintings. Gary has painted hundreds of commissioned portraits and sells his work nationally. Other commissioned artwork is available with reasonable pricing.

When I am painting my visions of the world I am filled with gratitude for everybody and everything. I transform paint into abundant light filled with energy and life. My goal is to awaken in the viewer a feeling of extraordinary awareness.
My figurative landscapes are painted directly from life working with my French easel outdoors. I am compelled toward the more complex compositional conditions creating the illusion of three-dimensional space. When I paint a formal portrait using a photograph as a reference each brushstroke embellishes personal characteristics with emotional empathy.
