Since Martin graduated from law school, he and his
wife Cynthia have been avid collectors of paintings
and prints from the 1880 to 1915 era.
When traveling, Martin paints outdoors en plein air.
He takes reference photos for painting later in his
home studio. His favorite landscape and seascape
subjects involve Asia (China and Japan), Europe (Italy,
Croatia, and the U.K.), Hawaii (Maui), Bali, St. Thomas,
and San Francisco. The artists who have influenced
him most are Whistler, Sargent, Sorolla, and Zorn.
Apart from his painting, Martin practices in the
business litigation field with his son Keith at Galbut &
Galbut PC. His four grandchildren have all done their
first oil paintings in his studio.
