- The artist Scott Moore was educated in

Watercolor School, Woodstock, New York;

California State University, Long Beach.
- Moore presently lives in Laguna Beach,

a studio and teaches a small watercolor workshops.
- During military service, Scott Moore
was an illustrator for the U.S. Marine
Corps and since that time has had a number
of publications in magazines and several
books about artistic painting.
- Scott Moore's gallery of artwork is primarily
a blend of interesting and unique themes
created in watercolor in the Giclée
printing process or Offset Lithographs.
- At first glance his work resembles a form of poster art but
the imagery within each theme is far more subtle and needs to be
viewed carefully for individual interpretation.
- Artist Scott Moore represents individuals
as his subject matter in numerous different
genre settings such as work, recreation
or travel; his depictions are very realistic
representations of diminutive people set
within still life motifs that carry a subtle
symbolism behind the imagery of each artist scene.
- Throughout artist Scott Moore's compositions
his figures are depicted in a variety of
poses and postures surrounded by enormous
common place objects that befit the title
of the piece and the inherent artist theme within.
- Moore uses strong lighting and shadows that focus on the main
scene as well as soft hues that are balanced and contrasted by bright, bold colors.

- In the Grocery Checkers Giclée
print, the artist’s motif is based
on three figures seated at an elongated
picnic table where four checkerboards have
been placed on the surface, but only one
is being used by the two checkers players,
while a spectator is watching the checker game.
- The checkered pattern in the flooring matches the color
and design of the checkerboards.
- Realistically depicted yet overly sized
grocery objects surround the checker opponents,
but a strong light source highlights the
figures and draws attention to their postures
typical of the focus required in a traditional
game of checkers.
- The composition is an interesting blend
of balance and contrast in the size of
the food item shapes and the human forms
as well as bold and muted colors and tonal shadows.
- One interpretation is that checkers can be played anywhere,
but that the game also has traditional roots in the good old general store.
