About the Author
Artist Mark Moore has been creating works of art since he was old enough to pick up a drawing instrument. A recent winner in the 2012 New Master Artist top 100 World Artist and Netherlands’ prestigious worldwide art competition E-TAXI, Moore’s interpretations of historical entertainment figures, cityscapes, nature scenes and more are drawing high praise from art lovers and Moore’s peers alike. Though he is known primarily for his creations of acrylic on canvas, he is also noted for his works of acrylic on wood sculpture, watercolors, oil paintings, drawings, murals and other works that he dedicates to his late mother, who was the inspiration and the impetus behind his pursuit of art as both a means of expression and a vocation. An Ohio native who now lives in north Alabama with his childhood sweetheart wife and young family, Moore’s works have been displayed in prominent galleries and exhibitions throughout the World and featured in several books and Film.

"A Glimpse of Me"
by Dr. Wilson Luquire
I met Mark Moore (Sr.) just a few weeks ago at The Red Door Gallery in Hartselle, Alabama. I saw a number of his paintings that were at the Gallery's Spring Event. The paintings were varied and thought-provoking to me, a novice in the art world. I have, in fact, had a few fairly major art
works which I acquired through the support and interest of a number of my friends who are art savvy and much more art literate than me. However I am well traveled in the art world in the U.S. and beyond, having had the privilege of seeing many of the world's great art works.
Back to Mark. His works seemed to speak to me. And in this "Glimpse of Me", I find the stories and history behind his paintings to be real and fetching. I have been privileged to now have a few of Mark's original paintings, but I have been equally enthralled by his creative distribution of reproductions of his art, which reminds me of and which I think is very akin to the late Thomas Kinkade dynasty and legacy. Most of us cannot in reality afford most of well-known artists' originals, but we can and do enjoy first-class reproductions. To those art elitists who fault Mr. Kinkade, I say thank you Mr. Kinkade.
To me, Mark's "Santana", which is the cover for his book, is a vivid combination of realism of Carlos Santana, but presented in a brilliant
abstract rendition. His creativeness with "The Wedding" and the bonding;
his "City Rain 1" of a wet night in New York City; his "Unknown Hero" in the cemetery - probably Arlington; his "Ghost of 66" from the fabled Route; his very seductive "Sensual Desire" from his Wine series; his "Past Life" an abstract Lion brought to life - just to name a few selected paintings that come to life in the many works in his and his wife, Stephanie's, new book.
I have been lucky enough to be in close enough proximity to Mark and his family, Stephanie, Mark and Stephen, to be able to see up close and personal his dedication and his burning desire to have not only his art, but those of many of his colleagues, to be living breathing works all over the world, whether original paintings that many of us cannot afford, or quality copies - attesting to Mark's goal that art is not only for the rich and famous, but for all humanity to enjoy.
Bravo! A Standing Ovation! And now that Siskel and Ebert are gone - I give "A Glimpse of Me" a Thumbs Up!
It was shipped to me exceptionally fast, and when I opened it and looked through it, I was not disappointed. It is not hard to get lost in the artwork. In the two days I've owned it, I've looked through it several times, and I'm gonna leave it on my table for a few days to look some more before finding a permanent place for it in my house.
I'm very happy with this book, and proud to own it! Along with all of the great art inside, the book itself is well put together, and the cover art is perfect. A great looking book, too.
