My Works. Your Walls.

Or, your walls, my art—no matter how you look at it, it’s a beautiful thing.

A bit About Me

Mark Laurence LaRivière

My art work combines painting, design and photography.

In college, I studied painting but put making art “on hold” to pursue a career as an art director while also making fine art photographs on the side. 

Thirty years later, I’m making painted art again. But today I’m combining paint, digital graphics and photography to produce the images appearing in my imagination.

My Work Is

Powered by Color

I‘m always observing nature to find colors I can use in making art. I often find inspiration in flowers—borrowing from nature’s own designs—to captivate the eye while still challenging the mind to look deeply. For this 4′ x 4′ Zinnia painting I mixed 12 shades of pink.

My Work Is

Inspired by Nature

Although I sometimes paint outdoors (en plein air), most often I work from photographs that I’ve taken. In this painting of ferns, I shot several photos and projected one on a high resolution monitor to guide my brushwork.

My Work Is

Made with Imagination

My landscapes are often purely imaginary. I empty my mind and let the brush lead the way. I observe the random marks while I’m making them and sometimes steer them into a recognizable image. What emerges is straight from the subconscious.

Painting arrived on time in perfect condition. Images online showed a good representation of the work. Thanks!

The canvas is stunning. I need to invite more people over to see it. It was exactly what I was hoping for. The preview gave me a good idea of what to expect, but it didn’t do the painting justice. Shipping was perfect.
