I use Simple Deserted Landscapes and Everyday Objects, combined with Dramatic Skies that set a Tone or Mood, to deliver a Symbolic Message in each work..
A Message that Embodies and Symbolizes a particular human value, a feeling or spirit; to enhance, illuminate and to better understand...what is best or worse in them.
