    Description

    Seems to me I'm the only artist who speaks his mind. Well, I'm 61 years old and I can do that. I have been getting comments through my website and this is an acrylic painting and not a photograph (OKAY).  Please don't compare my work to an inferior photo. A photograph is a joke. This is some winter silver driftwood bones on a dormant, secluded beach near my hometown. I love the composition I created in this piece if nobody else can see it.....daahhh. This is my last time entering this competition since the judges are not noticing and capturing the subtle nuances. Realism is king.

    Once Upon A Time

    Love the dark background that sets off the warm light on the figure. The figures pose is wonderful, with the face half hidden and the bangs on the forehead catching the light. The wicker chairs capture an era and the child reading there seems ageless

    My story goes on for over 50 years. That being said, I paint for passion and nothing more. I love what I do.
