About the Artist
Larry R Stewart Fine Art Gallery
Larry Stewart is a self-taught artist who paints primarily in his studio in Union Springs, Alabama. His work depicts the Old South, it's buildings, it's people and their way of life. Larry's earliest drawings were in junior high school. His depictions of teachers soon earned him notoriety among his classmates but little appreciation or encouragement from the subjects of his drawings. After completing business and law degrees and years of work experience in both fields, Larry renewed his interest in art. He began painting in his mid-50's, and has spent the last decade devoting less time to his law practice and various businesses and more time to his painting. A frequent traveler, he plans trips around scenes he hopes to find and bring to life on canvas. Larry believes he reveals something of himself in his art, much to his own occasional surprise, and often to the enjoyment of those who admire his work.
