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.
