Interview with Matt Greenway

Matt Greenway, Late Afternoon, 28 x 40 inches, oil on canvas, 2011

Matt Greenway and Kate Mundie at F.A.N.'s June First Friday
I just interviewed artist, Matt Greenway. He is exhibiting his paintings at F. A. N. Gallery this month.

I have admired his work for the last decade. It was fun to find out how he makes paintings and what inspires him. Matt has been influenced by the English impressionist painter, Walter Sickert, who I was not familiar with. I am going to get to know Sickert's work better. We both have been inspired by Daniel Garber.  We both had been blown away by an exhibition of Garber's works we saw at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art in 2007.

It's fun to see how another artist thinks about their craft. You can read the interview at fanfinearts blog.
