East End: Artist hopes to capture North Fork through his paintings
An artist on the North Fork has spent the last few decades making sure to capture the scenery on Long Island’s East End.
Max Moran used to paint the city, but then moved to the country, painting everything from bugs, to rain, and clouds.
He says clouds are always changing, which proves to be a challenge.
“I think it’s a lot like golf – you enjoy the frustration,” Moran says.
He says he loves the uniqueness of Long Island.
“When you fall in love with the North Fork and all the extraordinary landscape here, the farming fields, the trucks, the whole culture, it’s a lot to mine,” Moran says. “And I’m trying my best to get as much of it on there before the open fields turn into development housing.”
