Herdman is a Columbus/Warren, Ohio based Painter.  He thinks of his work as more inspired than inspirational. He doesn’t go to a studio daily to work and paints when he’s influenced to do so. He says the motivation can be nature, printed page layout, or even a dream sequence. He keeps my message simple saying “You are not viewing some profound statement - its paint on canvas. Take from it what you will.”


You'll likely see Gary during his daytime job as a Capital Crossroads SID ambassador. He'll be wearing a neon green shirt or coat, and he'll be driving one of the utility vehicles. In the summer, you may find him watering flowers on Capitol Square.
