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.

Collectors Say:

"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."

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?
