National Puzzle Company Strikes Deal with Owensboro Artist
Gary Adams' has been painting and selling his beautiful works of art for decades. Everything he creates is worth framing and sharing. Today he announced that he received a licensing deal with a national puzzle company.
I grew up drawing and painting for most of my life. It was a passion that I loved so much I took up art as my minor in college. I haven't picked up a brush or a pencil in years, but I still love it. It's important to follow local artists and to share their talents. Gary Adams is someone that I follow closely as his talent is 1000% better than mine ever was. It takes him three to four weeks to complete a painting and landscapes are his favorite subject to paint. He's very gifted and shares his talent with others.
How it Started for Gary Adams
I've followed Gary for years on social media, and he's so humble. It makes me smile every time he sells one of his paintings. Because he's so talented, I needed to know how it all started.
"As a child, I would spend hours drawing cartoons from the local newspaper, and all throughout my school years, I excelled in art. That started a lifelong desire of putting paint on canvas. Over the years, my drawings took on a more realistic quality, and I released my first limited edition art print in 1976. The subject was an old mill located at Falls of Rough, Kentucky, and 1,500 art prints were sold. Since that first release, I've painted and issued many other works of art and sold thousands of paintings and reproductions of my work.", Gary shared
Works of Art in Puzzles
Soon we'll be able to tackle his works of art in puzzles. I love putting together a good puzzle. I just wish I had more time to do so. It can be so therapeutic to work with the puzzle pieces and try to make them fit. It also takes a lot of patience which I lack sometimes!
Gary made the big announcement today on social media. "I received an email this morning that a picture puzzle company has selected and purchased licenses to place these two images of my paintings on their puzzles to be offered worldwide.", he excitedly shared
I asked him how it all came about and he explained, "I posted my paintings on an arts Facebook page with over 400,000 members. That's where the CEO of an art licensing company discovered my paintings. We talked by cell phone, and I was signed to be one of the artists they represent. I'm very excited about this opportunity."
The upcoming puzzles will feature two different scenes captured perfectly by Gary. The pieces all came together, and we're excited for you too!
