Artist Michael Budden
The Artist Says:
Trying to capture the effects of light on the world is what inspires me to paint no matter what the subject is. Enjoying the quality of paint on the surface of the painting is also an interest which really shows up when painting direct from observation.
"Dear Michael, Today we were able to take home "The Road To Centerbridge". We are absolutely thrilled and it looks awesome in our home. Thank you you so much for creating a masterpiece! With Best Regards, Doug and Wendy Kale."
"Hello Mike, Thank you so much for sending Wendy and me the American Art Review. How exciring to see "The Road To Centerbridge" in such a prestigious magazine...and rightly so! Move over Redfiled and Garber! I took a peak at the "Road To New Hope" on your web site. Wow! You've done it again. Is the painting available and if so what is the price? Do we have to wait to purchase at the show or can we do thie ahead of time? Thanks again, Mike. Wendy and I send our warmest wishes to your family for a wonderful holiday season. Best Regards, Doug."
Mike, thanks for delivering a great looking show. I was so thrilled to see the paintings that some even made me say "Wow" out loud as I unwrapped them."
