- Guy Corriero
- I was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. My educational history is as follows: Long Beach High School, School of Visual Arts, C.W.Post College, M.A. in Humanities, Hofstra University. A two year stint in the U.S.Marine Corps as a illustrator eased my entrance into civilian life as a commercial artist in N.Y.C. My teaching career of twenty five years began at the State University in Farmingdale, N.Y. and ended as a Professor of Fine Arts at Herkimer County Community College, where I was awarded The New York State Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching. I now paint full time in Portland Maine where I live with my wife Sharon. I paint all subjects from portraits to landscapes but I especially love painting the sea. Last year marked the end of forty straight years of teaching workshops on Monhegan Island, Maine, I now conduct three day classes in Kennebunkport every spring and fall. My work can be seen at The Wiscasset Bay Gallery, Wiscasset, Me., Dowling Walsh Gallery, Rockland, Me.,Camden Falls Gallery, Caamden, Me. and here in my studio in Portland. I am a signature member of The American Watercolor Society and the New York State Watercolor Society.

I had the sun in the painting for a few months then decided to take it out as it was a distraction from the focal point, which I felt was the breaking wave in the foreground.
The painting is oil on linen canvas.

John and Barbara Schwarz were brother and sister. Neither ever married and they lived and worked the farm until they were forced to move because of their failing health. Both are gone now and while they were living I was always welcome to paint anywhere on "their place" as they called it. One day I walked into John's Garage, really a work place and was taken back by all the yellow tabacco cans. He rolled his own cigarettes. They were Top Tobacco Cans. This is a painting of his workbench.

It's an oil on canvas. 24x36.
The fellow with the red capote had all kinds of fronteer wear and I posed him many times. The figure on the right was a former rodeo bull rider who owned a horse farm in upstate N.Y.
