The Artist ca. 2004
Curator's Comment:  We first met Traynor at Salmagundi, where he has been the auction
sales leader for many years and the current dean of active Salmagundi painters. We thought we
had purchased a Traynor in a Salmagundi auction with an online bid that told us we had won and we
were thus blocked by the program from bidding higher--only to discover that the floor auctioneer
had closed the console and taken higher floor-only bids. But at last we can offer a magnificent
Traynor--a close-up perspective called
"In the Winter Woods" and we think Traynor paints best in
this perspective. Traynor's painting style is reminiscent of some 19th century painters, and
sometimes the Dutch Masters. He uses what he knows about light and color to create a natural
vision that resonates and liberates the observer's personal perspective.

Traynor was born October 19, 1961. He spent his early years in Chester and Mendham, New Jersey.
His art studies began at Delbarton School in Morristown New Jersey; from there he went to Paier
College of Art in New Haven Connecticut. He studied figure painting at the Art Students League of
New York, as a merit scholar, with Frank Mason, as well as landscape painting with Mr. Mason in
Vermont. Traynor also studied in Italy. Traynor currently resides with his family in southern New
Hampshire and enjoys painting rural New England scenes.
He is a member of the Hudson Valley Art Association, The Salmagundi Club of New York, The
National Society of Mural Painters, and he is a Copley Master in the Copley Society of Boston.
Traynor is the recipient of over two hundred awards of merit for his art, including the Grumbacher
Gold Medal, the Robb Sagendorph award, and the Frank DuMond Memorial Award for best light and
atmospheric effect in a painting. His work is enjoyed in over one thousand private and public
collections in the United States and abroad, including the Passaic Country College, the Patterson
Historical Museum, the Ironbound Education and Cultural Center, Connecticut Bank and Trust, the
Sony Music Corporation, and McGraw Hill Publishers.
