Gordon Luce

“It is amazing how good paintings successfully capture the atmosphere, the sun, the shade, the color, even seemingly the smell and feeling of a place or event, more than realistic photos or other depictions ever could.”

Gordon Luce was born and raised in California and has traveled extensively throughout the United States. After obtaining a Master of Science degree and building a successful career, Gordon began training in drawing and oil painting years ago. He has since devoted himself full-time to his second career as an artist. More »

“The desire to draw has been with me as long as I can remember. I most distinctly remember sitting next to my friend David in junior high school, who would take a pen and create gorgeously fantastic science-fiction type scenes. I remember thinking that I would give almost anything to be able to draw and create art like he did.”

Needless to say, Gordon’s taste in art has changed since his junior high school days. Although occasionally he will paint a still life, indoor or figurative scene, Gordon derives the most enjoyment from painting outdoors. He is attracted to many types of scenes, but prefers pure landscape (containing no people), beach scenes with people enjoying the sun and surf, and desert scenes. Most recently he has been painting city scenes.

“When selecting a scene to paint, something about it has to grab me. Sometimes it is a feeling I get when observing the scene. It might be the patterns of shadow versus light, the activity or interplay of colors.”

Gordon has participated in several juried and invitational plein air festivals including Carmel Plein Air, San Luis Obispo Plein Air, Borrego Springs Invitational, as well as many other juried and invitational shows. He has obtained significant awards and recognition along the way.

Gordon is represented by the Judith Hale Gallery, Los Olivos, CA. His is a member of the California Art Club, The Oil Painters of America, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and Southern California Plein Air Painters Association.
