  • thanks to Glennray’s son, Zach, for the heads up.

  • viiaan

    I like those glass-ball

  • Sia

    <3 marble balls!

  • Jordan

    Okay this is ridiculous… no matter how hard I work in life, I will never be able to churn out anything as incredible as this =/

    The attention to detail is incredible! Seriously great work.

  • lapetitefaon

    Wow, what a unique, awesome subject. These are so awesome!

  • Dang. Marbles AND romance comics? Whew!

  • KB

  • joshbotch

    these are paintings???

  • Andrea Eusebio

    The feminine marbles are pretty clever…

  • toomanycrayons

    Ah, yes, love is a bowl full of marbles. I like the cartoon rendering of human passion and the overlay of the child’s game of Marbles. How close to the line can we be and still not win?

    Here’s a site for the various forms of Marble Love: http://www.landofmarbles.com/marbles-play.html

    oh lord.

  • Simon

  • topdrk.m

    who carries his works? Cost?

    • Betsy

      Fabulous. The thoughts of childhood and treasured items radiate love from the painting.

  • sr

    these are paintings? geez louize!

  • AGA Szwengier

    Unbelievably cool

  • At first I was thinking, “Funny of them to post an entire set,” because I thought they were photographs. Turns out they are paintings.

    Thanks, Booooooom. Mind sufficiently blown.

  • I’ve seen Glennray’s paintings in person and they are truly astonishing. I agree with the sentiment of everyone who has posted here–he’s the painter’s painter.

  • Michl

    stunning !

  • Wow, nice nice nice work.

  • Amanda

    This doesn’t do his work justice. Glennray Tutor is an artistic genious. He has a painting that is currently in the MS Museum of Art of mason jars with canned vegetables in it. Sounds normal…right? WRONG! When you see this piece in person, it will blow your mind. I stood there in awe.

  • paul windham

    I lived beside Tutor’s grocery from ’65-70..
    many great memories of walking into the store and checking
    out the candy counter to the immediate left, and Mr. Hubert behind the meat counter, with his white apron on..
    sure wish you could put the inside of the store in oil..
    ‘love all your work…
