these unusual images is make a call. After that, he will take delight in the
emotional expressions and experiences felt by the prospective buyer, whether
actually making a purchase, or not.

Biography: \"Edward Longo\'s physical and mental makeup constitutes equal parts of
talent and tenacity. The impetus for his series of paintings began when, emerging as
an inspirational painter, this artist realized a strong connection with master
artists of the past. His ability to create works of art purely from imagination is
quite a remarkable gift. Behind that descriptive lies a genuine appreciation for
pastel thinking, especially as it relates to a verdant countryside. Early life on
the East Coast brought him in contact with elongated shorelines. The artist was
drawn to the ocean much in the manner expressed by England\'s laureate, John
Masefield, who wrote the immortal lines, \'I must go down to the sea again, to the
lonely sea and the sky.\"Many voyages ensued, courtesy of the U.S. Naval Air Corps.
So, brine rolling foam, lusty breezes and ocean swells became ingrained within the
confines of a sensitive soul. Establishing himself in New York City, he took a
serious approach to creative painting. Longo\'s fulfillment came in expressing
himself. Exhibitions followed -- the public was responsive, the art critics
complimentary. Galleries & the walls of prominent restaurants have given the
developing \"Longo legend\" good exposure. Although his artistic bent has encompassed
music, psychology, acting & writing, it is painting that has given him a sense of
even greater gratification. His originality begins the moment he
becomes one-on-one with the canvas. Brush or knife in hand, he is able to express,
through God-given ingenuity, experiences that have been an integral part of the
artist for decades. Edward Longo is not a product of traditional training. He is a
gratified man because his strokes carry with them excitement, surprise and freedom
of expression, as well. I would describe him as being the son of an ethereal
marriage of spirit and inspiration.\" Gary Stevens - syndicated columnist.

\"Every art painting is an original - each painting becoming developed through a
different attitude.Creative painting is not merely the process of executing one\'s
medium, such as oil, or acrylic - it is the art of transferring one\'s feelings from
the palate onto the canvas. Ultimately, when the artist\'s work is being observed it
will be appreciated for the inspiration that transpired during its inception.
Creative art, therefore, simply becomes a matter of transference of feelings. To put
bluntly: art without feeling is tantamount to observing a stained glass window
without light, or a Tiffany lamp without its electricity.\" . . . Edward Longo.
