Clifford Gleason

Here are some images assembled.  Sally Judd (Lawrence) did a lot to keep Clifford working and alive at the end of his life, and it was at her gallery in Portland we first met him n the 1970’s.  Too bad we didn’t ask him the “big” questions:

The missing painting…

  1. Have not seen the ‘missing’ painting, but I have a painting by Clifford that only a few have seen, as I acquired it from him directly from his easel (he said it was finished?) as he needed the money at the time and needed the sale. He was a friend who I saw occasionally having met him through Kay Hatfield, and had run into him in Portland at a tavern in the Fall of 1965. Painting is unsigned (typical of Clifford)l 39 H by 40 W abstract. I would be happy to share the image with those who know his work.

  2. bon, someone i met at the high street gallery opening dec 3 wrote “Clifford Gleason” on a napkin and gave it to me. i’m such a nervous norvous at openings i can’t remember why or who, but i looked him up on the web this morning, and guess what i found in …”On The Way”. happy to connect the man to some of the pictures of his i also found on the web. i love his colorful, seemingly simple paintings!
