More of Lar's Biography
"I work with several mediums. I am painting most but I work with photography in 35mm, two and a quarter - medium formats along with digital. My paintings involve acrylic and oil. Now and then I do water colors and drawings. For several years, I've been experimenting with mixed media adding textures and surprise elements into multi-panel abstract pieces. I'm surprised how much of a following my textured work of this kind has and the comments I get about it."
"I was trained in Radio - TV - Film Art in college at the University of Texas. After, I worked in TV news for 13 years as a videographer. I served as head videographer here in Texas at several network affiliates and also worked in Oklahoma. Later I became News Assignments Editor back in Texas while overseeing the writing and shooting of news with an entire team of TV journalists. Eventually I left that world."
"I also work with computer graphic art in Professional programs. Reclaiming my previous art form, I am working with transferring video art to computer and have begun to acquire consumer type computer programs to hone in on this process. I have several video pieces I have done that are set to music in computer format as part of that solo learning experience."
"Some of the awards I've won were awards for spot TV news video, for my web site, Fine Art Shack based
on design, and for the art itself displayed on it. I have an online gallery of my art here at Fine Art Shack Gallery that will give
you a taste of the various media in my work."
