Gary Whitley, SCA, AFCA

Gary is an artist leaving in Vernon B.C., at the north end of the Okanagan Valley.  For him, painting is an obession, something he does almost every day.  Subject matter, colour, composition and perspective are important in any painting, however a pronounced light source and atmospheric perspective are very important in all his paintings. 

He always tries to create a sense of air in his paintings.  As one of his mentors put it, "We are painting shapes that have air between them, therefore paint air."  His landscapes are a result of long hours on horseback, with his wife, in a wide variety of terrain, but mostly the high country in both B.C. and Alberta. 

His florals he obtains from the extensive floral garden his wife has created, but he also paints subject matter he simply finds interesting.  As well as being an Elected member of the Society of Canadian Artist, he is also an Associate Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America.
