Gary Blackwell paints the things that he experiences and finds to be visually interesting. In general, he’s a pleinair painter who works in both pastels and oil. Subject matter certainly plays an important part of why he paints but secretly, her art is more about the elements that are abstract such as shapes and values, verticals and horizontals, color, light and composition. He says that painting is actually a discovery of the poetry of these abstract elements and how they are related. It took him years before this conception actually became a reality. The artist counts himself to have been lucky. He’s always known from an early age that he would be a visual artist. He can't imagine not painting and drawing.

He studied at Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida from where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. After his required stint in the army where he served as an illustrator, he finally settled in Southern California. Blackwell worked as a Creative Director in advertising for more than 20 years for a large corporation. While here, he never lost his focus on art. He continued painting and taking workshops to stay active. In the 1990's, he became involved with pastels and the artist joined many of pastel organizations. He soon became a member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast. And within 3 years, the Pastel Society of the West Coast honored him with the esteemed Distinguished Pastelist award. He’s currently a full-time painter who enjoys both plein-air and studio painting.
