Time does not stand still. Places change. People come and go and sadly, much of what gives a place a sense of character and uniqueness can easily disappear.
In these paintings Ray Goodrow tries to capture a moment – specific to the physical setting and defined by light and movement. He hopes that these pictures say something to others in the way that they speak to him. William Reese wrote: “painting is a way to transfer a thought that is too big or personal to put into words.” Ray likes to think that somehow that is what these painting are about. Be it rural East Texas, New Orleans, Rehoboth Beach, or Manhattan, each picture has a story to tell. You as the viewer are encouraged to find yourself in the story.
