Easel Update-June 24, 2011

I just started working on a new image today. The working title right now is “Out of the Wilderness.” I thought it would be fun to film the image as it progresses. Here is a 5 minute clip for those that are interested. Keep a look out for a time lapse of my progress (I’ll condense hours of painting down to a few minutes).

  1. Hi Greg,
    Julie here from PhoenixValleyMurals. I just wanted to say, this is so cool that your doing this. I always wanted to watch you paint. You are still the greatest painter in my book.

  2. The website is not my own. It is my son. I am serving as a misssionary part time with my husband in the Employment Resource Center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I also do online missionary work for the church. I love it. My father was an artist and each of my six sons are artists in their own way. My fifth son, Travis, and I took art lessons together and discovered that we both have some talent. Of course ours is not developed as much as yours. We love your work. I have never watched a painter paint a picture before. I am completely fascinated by this. My talent is more in the writing area. This morning I wrote a paragraph in my journal. It was as follows: I think that I have some music in me – a song, a poem, a story – that needs to come out – but how do I release it? It is inside my soul like a geni in a bottle.” Right after writing this line I went to my Facebook account and there I read what you had written on your site at the same time I wrote this in my journal. “The story of your life isn’t written in stone – it can still be a fairytale.” It was as though you were answering the question I had written in my journal as if you were standing there. It was something that took me back. Then I wrote the following in my journal in a question form, “Does this mean something? Amazing connection.” This evening I sat and did some reading in the Ensign. I always read scriptures first thing in the morning and then last thing at night. Then I checked my facebook again and saw that you were painting a picture online. And what an interesting title, “Out of the Wilderness”. The Lord is speaking to me through you in this painting. Thank you for being so much in tune with our Savior. Idaho is a great state. My husband was raised in Idaho. We lived there when we were first married. I will certainly watch you finish this painting. I love promoting your work.
    Thanks again,

  3. I had the chance to meet you more than a year ago at Nampa Costco and get my Forgiven print signed. It was truly an amazing experience for me, one still, to this day, I cherish. I am a painter, though not as talented as you, and thank you so much for sharing with us this work in progress. You continue to inspire, uplift, and share such a beautiful message with your work.
    All the best, Amy

  4. Please let me know if you’re looking for
    a author for your weblog. You have some really great articles and I think I
    would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to
    write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an email if interested. Thank you!

  5. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not
    sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thank you
