Landscape Painter: Grant Haffner
Frequent Focus: East End of Long Island
Artwork: Sunset on Long Beach, 2014
In his words:
The East End of Long Island has been my home for most of my life. I spent many years exploring the trails through the woods, cruising the quiet country roads, and hanging out on the beaches. My childhood here, surrounded by nature and water, was an experience that I cherish. Now that I am older, I can see how the landscape is changing and am reminded that it will never be the same. Hopefully, my paintings will capture the memory of that landscape before it fades.
Long Beach in Sag Harbor, N.Y. is only a short bike ride from my house and I pass it almost every day. The view of the beach as I drive by, night or day, rain or shine, is always breathtaking. The long curved stretch of sand and bay lined by telephone poles and asphalt is iconic. Long Beach is also one of the best places to watch the sun set. I painted Sunset on Long Beach in honor of one of those unbelievably beautiful sunsets.
