Larry Townsend is a painter and businessman living and working in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Though originally from Tampa, Florida, he received his start in art in Fort Worth, where as a teenager he became acquainted with abstract painting. Inspired by nature and the works of artists like Jackson Pollock, Townsend employs impasto texture and oil paint to produce abstract form paintings. He begins by defining shapes and structures and then complements the form with mixed earth-toned colors for a textured and harmonious composition. Townsend specializes in commissioned pieces, which he can design based on color schemes or by specific request. In the past decade, he has produced more than 50 paintings and has completed commissioned work for private collectors in the DFW areas as well as the Fort Worth Board of Relators’ office. Townsend also serves as the Senior Vice President and Chief Escrow Operations Officer at Rattikin Title, where he has worked for 36 years. He currently paints out of a studio in his Fort Worth home, where he lives with his wife of 39 years.
