A Modern Day Old Master
"I wanted to know I could achieve any effect that I could imagine, or see in the paintings of any great artist... I wanted total expressive freedom…
When I looked at the paintings of the Old Masters I saw in their work something that I did not see in contemporary art and so I dedicated myself to studying their methods and materials.
I guess you could say my style is sort of Renaissance and Baroque painting techniques meets modern art materials and the Canadian landscape."
"David's paintings are like no other. The glow from the canvas is just MAGICAL. He's able to catch the light in a way that I've never seen before"
I believe David gets better and better . . .with every stroke of the brush, he never stops learning and improving a craft that is already near perfect.
He has the creative talent and skill to take a breathtaking scene and make it even more unique and beautiful by adding his own perspective to the work. People often say his paintings make their hearts soar.
"Seeing how you work and watching you paint is like watching a magic show. Every brush stroke brings new magic, new life, and something wonderfully unexpected to the scene.”
"His paintings are rich and unique. I, personally, have been brought to tears by his work. The rich colors, passion, and dramatic movement often evoke unexpected emotions."
