"I believe that great art communicates immediately and directly to the heart of all humanity the educated and uneducated. Great art is timeless and has fixed elements and principals interwoven within the painting itself. A simple familiar universal scene that uplifts and can make you a better person as you ponder, think and look upon it. Humanity never tires of coming back and back and back to the familiar scene and it becomes a part of them. A never ending inspiration to the Soul."
