About Larry Martin

Richly colored jazz paintings, bold and dynamic abstracts, cool and serene landscapes, peaceful and sometimes stormy seascapes, sunrise. sunset, strange and odd combinations that pop! These are some of the varied subject matter that I present in oil, acrylic and watercolor mediums.

Ever wonder what you'll do when you retire? Well, painting was probably not on my bucket list, but thanks to our daughter it has become an important and rewarding part of my daily life. Following her tip about free chasses at State Universities in Tennessee for Seniors, I began painting at age 65 and sold my first painting at a gallery for $1800.00! That was the beginning of my art career - the year was 2004 and my age was 66. ----The band was playing 'Who'd-a-thought-it'.

Having been a never-gave-up-my-day-job musician, playing in bands and piano bars from Boston to Bangkok for most of my adult life, I was initially drawn to Jazz renditions, and later got into abstracts, landscapes, seascapes and Florals. I say that painting is kind of like playing bridge, another of my retirement pastimes - I became a Bronze Life Master in 2012. Each painting, like each bridge hand, is different and you never play the same hand or paint the same painting twice. That's what keeps you coming back, the challenge of creation and the belief that it will be worth it. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
