A quote from the late Charles Vickery July 2,
" Gary Odmark is
an inspired artist who has a real understanding of the Sea. His work
has an atmosphere of wind and wave from calm to full sail, winds that is like
marine grand opera.
He enjoys and
knows the laws of sea moods, the power and the color of deep and shallow
water seas and ships."
Mr. Vickery was probably the best painter of water
in his time. He is ranked with all the top
marine artist in history, such as Montague Dawson, Winslow Homer and many
others. I have greatly
appreciated his unselfish teaching of painting water and ships to fellow artists
