LPAPA Signature Artist Greg LaRock
It is with a heavy heart that we said goodbye to LPAPA Signature Artist, Mentor, Teacher and Fried Greg LaRock who passed on October 11, 2020 after injuries sustained in a rollerblading accident (click to read LA Times “Beautiful Soul”).
Greg LaRock’s passion is to capture the outdoor landscape and its ever-changing light and beauty. The challenge of depicting the three-dimensional world onto canvas is a difficult pursuit, but when it all comes together, it is an extremely rewarding experience. He says, “When the gap between believability and painterly expression is merged, I’ve done my job”.
