Joe & Gudi Pach TerraBijou
“we love to travel around the globe and get always lots of inspirations by other cultures. It shows also in always changing design ideas.”
“Visual artist Bruce Gray will be opening his workshop studio to the public for the first time. Enjoy a striking collection of works and tour of workshop and works in progress”
“I have a fascination with realistic works and this is reflected in the subjects I choose to paint. I am drawn to scenes with a strong light and shadow system. And even more importantly for me is capturing a mood and I achieve this by my choice of hues and tonal values selected from the color wheel.
“For me painting is a celebration of life and how light and color interact. The real joy is in the challenge and complexity and getting it right. I constantly strive to hold myself to the highest standards. “

What would my dream project be?
Well I feel I am working on my dream project currently, I can not discuss the project I am working on right now, but it is exciting and I feel it is an opportunity that artist get only so often. That being said anytime I get a chance to create someone’s idea and do it in my own way, it is a dream job!
What is the one tool I can not do without?
I would say the internet. I can research any thing I need from home. It allows me to network with other artists. I can do banking, buying, marketing…. it is an extremely powerful tool that I am still finding ways to use.
What would you do with a million dollars?
Honestly I don’t know, I don’t think about it, I don’t buy lotto tickets and I don’t think I will inherit it. I hope over time I gross a million dollars through the business of art. I would have spent it in our economy, been able to raise a family, pay taxes and donated to local charity events.
What kind of music do you listen to when working?
I have a wide variety of music from main stream county and pop culture to grass root local , I think classical music is missing from my play list, but if someone wants to suggest a favorite I would add to it.
If I had a superpower, what would it be and why?
To fly like Superman because it would be fun.
