From the Artist:
"This is sort of a starting point for me, a 'perspective' gained from experience and knowledge of painting. I paint only what and in the way I want, but like the interaction of discussing how these works came to be with others. Out of this comes new ideas and true growth.
These are all works that have been finished in the last year. They represent the travels I have experienced, the 'far', and the new way I have been looking at things close to me where I live, the 'near'. I am mostly representational and a realist. However, underneath the obvious image I always try to build a 'framework' or 'composition' that does not alienate the format of the canvas with the image on it. I try to marry the two without forcing their union."
