Open Tues.-Sat. 11am-5pm, Sun. 2pm-5pm
Blue Boy
is a 2’x4’ painting by gallery
owner and artist Ray Heard, created
with a technique that resembles his
thick impasto Mosaic impressionistic
paintings, yet it is executed with a
thinner layer of paint. This reduces
the cost for art seekers who need
a very large painting but are
working with a decorating budget.
These affordable paintings are also
completely customizable with a
scene of the client’s choosing, from
birds, sunsets, and fish, to turtles,
houses, and palm trees, and they are
available in a range of sizes starting
at 8”x10”. Visit Heard Gallery to view
