Salvador Dali once said, "Have no fear of perfection-you'll never reach it." But for an artist residing in the southwest portion of Florida, perfection is what he strives for. In 2005, Aaron began to perfect his art of "21st Century Exactism;" A technique where he uses Adobe Photoshop to find the exact color matches to aide his painting process. The technique is applied when painting any realistic portraiture. He has also used "Exatism" while working on his three master works, which consist of: Past, "Scientific Eden"; Present, "Hell On Earth"; and Future, "A New Creation". Today, Aaron spends most of his time drawing and painting. He plays and writes music. He likes to hang out with close friends at home or out on the town. Salvador Dali once said, "Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality." Aaron Rains can certainly appreciate that statement today. -Darrin Russ
