Made in the Maldives, 2011

May 8, 2011

Returning for a second time to feed visually on the magical world of the Maldives, we rediscover white sand trails weaving patterns across the island, connecting the community of secluded bungalows and pristine plunge pools shaded by towering palm trees. We are back to island life where the sky overflows with sunset colored billowing clouds […]

Seabourn Sojourn: Sydney to Bali, 2011

March 15, 2011

As soon as we escape the controlled waters of Sydney harbor our vessel slams into the waves of the Bass Strait like a sledgehammer pounding on dirt. Tossing us side-to-side and front to back, the seas play with us like a child with a rag doll. Creaking and dipping, our suite with 600 thread-count sheets […]

Made at the Great Wall, China, 2010

October 1, 2010

Hunkered down in Grandma’s House at The Schoolhouse at MuTianYu has been invigorating. The grounding influences of village life mixed with the intriguing vistas of the Great Wall have fueled and filled my creative spirit. Hawks and pine trees pepper the skyline while we hike the Wall and country roads. My studio is the converted […]

A Summer in Garessio, Italy, 2010

August 29, 2010

Again we return to our little village in the Maritime Alps of Italy, tucked up against the hills and surrounded by green trees and clean rushing streams. This trip was more about sharing what Angie and I created last year than creating new works. We opened our joint exhibition at the best and only real […]

August 29, 2010

Angie’s Water Lilies: In our overly stimulated world, for Angie Tan-Burns, Lilies offer a welcomed respite for the soul.

Reflecting on these natural works of art one is reminded how capable and creative Mother Nature can be.   Gregory’s […]

Fervent Global Love of Lives Medal, Taiwan, 2010

June 17, 2010

Last week in Taiwan, I had the honor of accepting the, “Fervent Global Love of Lives Medal” along with a dozen other individuals who also received this award. Listening to their stories brought with it the realization that my life is rather small and meaningless in comparison. I heard of several women who continue to […]

A Sanctuary, Phuket, Thailand, 2010

February 3, 2010

ANANTARA PHUKET – A Sanctuary In ancient times, the Thai nobility built temples and protective walls of deep red earthen bricks; the rich color still penetrating centuries later. Entering the Anantara resort presents the guest with a similar sensation of walking into a peaceful and protected enclave. We immediately felt at home. Our residency came […]

The Golden Triangle, 2009

December 31, 2009

From 35,000 feet, Thailand’s northern border with Burma and Laos is nothing to write home about – a fairly flat pancake affair with some shallow hills of auburn dirt. A sea of vegetation sprawls from the jungles to envelope that which has not been cultivated. Several rivers divide up the landscape here and there but […]

Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, China, 2008

October 21, 2008

Beijing Games 2008   In celebration of the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing, I felt it fitting to produce a series of paintings that salute the athletes and their efforts. The series seeks to capture and encapsulate the essence of the athletic experience in individual and team sports. I put forth these paintings […]

Moroccan Medley We transit from Singapore at Dubai en-route to Casablanca. The packed international airport like Disneyland for a United Nations of shoppers and it’s barely six in the morning. Women wrapped from head to toe wearing Christian Dior bumblebee sunglasses browse for gold and electronic goods. Landing into a toasted Casablanca we transit to […]
