The Artist Says:



ARTIST STATEMENT



"It seems that everything is being sourced offshore, and it is difficult to find items handmade in America. Regardless of what store I may be in, I hear someone say, "Do you have anything that is not made in China?"We painters have an answer for them! Our paintings are handmade in America by Americans and are one-of-a-kind pieces. Painters have to start each day with a new idea for a painting subject, and then complete it in their own personal technique. The painting is as surely theirs as is their fingerprint.Consider your painting friends, can you tell which painting belongs to whom? More than likely you can and so can everyone else who is familiar with the work. If you paint the same subject several times they will all be different. No one else can or will paint just like you; so take pride in producing a very unique and special American-made product each and every time you put brush to canvas."
