Photorealistic Americana artwork of Gordon Inyard.

I was recently introduced to the photorealistic paintings of Gordon Inyard at Peterson-Cody Gallery in Santa Fe and I feel the need to write about this incredible artist. Like myself, Gordon focuses on the icons of America that are quickly vanishing, from rusted neon motel signs and tin advertisements to roadside diners and abandoned gas stations. Inyard's attention to detail is precise and beautiful. His idea is to preserve these Americana icons through photographs taken in his travels and then translate them into paintings.

You can see more of his work here and here.
