In this gallery you will find a collection of paintings by artist Brad Parrish that in their simplest ways convey their messages so profoundly. Sometimes it will be those vibrant colors and bold strokes with confidence and accuracy of a professional marksman that delivers that which this artist is trying to say. Then other times, it's the settling colors and the gentle blended stokes that takes the viewer beyond the surface of the work and deeper into feeling of understand as to what the artist wished to convey.
Brad had thrown many works like these away over the years and for several reasons. Mainly because of the constant pressures to satisfy his publishers and galley owners needs for his other works, works that were selling out over the past three decades. Frustrated over the popularity of his other works which restricted him the creative freedom he needed to paint what he wanted, Brad often times felt those who liked to pigeonhole an artist were doing just that to him. After Brad left his publishers he created such works as "LOVE" and the "Destiny of Love". In between publishers Brad painted pieces like "The Eye's Have It", "Las Vegas" and "Everlasting" to name a few in this galley. There were several of Brads early contemporary works that had been stolen. One that Brad misses even to this day is called "The Wave" an original watercolor that the artist did when he was 16 years old. Brad says... "I used to be faltered that someone wanted my art so bad they would steal it, but not having a photograph of this piece or all the others that were taken, is to say the least heartbreaking". What we do have of Brads works of art in this gallery collection is an important piece of who this artist is, and glad that these works remain.
