I work in the realist tradition because I feel it offers me the most challenges in the practice of fine art painting.  Verdi said:  'It may be a good thing to copy reality; but to invent reality is much, much better'.......I try to 'invent reality' in my paintings as the settings that I use are all imaginary as are most of the objects.
