Eye of the Cheetah by Lanny Sherwin. All Rights Reserved.
He has been engaged in the creative arts for most of his life: writing, editing, photography, music, origami, drawing, painting…
Some have been for business, such as being President of Gulfshore Publishing Co., Inc., which published magazines. Some have been for whimsy, such as being lead guitarist for the seminal oldies band, “Midlife Crisis.” Underneath all of them has been a stream of curiosity, a naivete, and a desire to achieve the highest quality regardless of the medium.
He has been creating art for about 15 years and began to focus on painting in 2011. He has accumulated a body of work that displays growth, focus, and heart. Landscapes, figurative, still life, and wildlife all attract his interest, and he approaches each with enthusiasm and creativity. 30 of his paintings have been in shows in the last 5 years.
By the way, he is also President of the children’s record label, Sandman Records. He has released 5 kids’ CDs, each of which follows his label.
