I never had a one-man retrospective before and I thought it would be great to document some of my best work plus some other goodies from the past 20 years.
More than just a portfolio book, I have included some rare stuff and chronologically organize the art in categories and year created. I want to show the development and growth of different subject matters, such as landscapes, still-lifes, portraits, illustrations and even murals. Palettes, interests, perspectives have evolved while certain techniques and styles are defined from the beginning. I even include a drawing I did in nursery school. It's really up to the viewer to become the ultimate critic, and I respect that.
I have always painted for myself and the public, not for the status quo. I wanted to make an art book that was nostalgic and fun with heart and want the viewer to be entertained and touched of this evolutionary trip of one artist.
