A country back road in early morning from imagination, I really wanted an atmospheric thickness to this one. In my opinion, causing it to become one of my most lifelike paintings from memory yet.
"The greatness of art is not in the display of knowledge, or in material accuracy, but in the distinctness with which it conveys the impressions of a personal vital force, that acts spontaneously, without fear or hesitation." - George Inness
American artist from Fort Worth Texas, of dutch, and Irish heritage, with a focus on traditional tonalism landscapes. I'm infectiously drawn to tonal paintings for their absolute simplicity, and across the room conspicuousness. Most of my work is produced at home from imagination, and abstraction. While attempting to create a mood with lighting, and composition to symbolize the beauty, and great peace of nature. When I'm not painting, I'm a full time train conductor for the Fort Worth & Western Railroad! Instagram @nategradyart @nategrady My Brand @ogradaco ogradaco.com
