Here I am once again playing with the light. Some people say that I paint hyper - realistic and I say no! I paint realistic impressions. This is what my eyes see outside the original image whether it be a photo or Plein Air or a sketch. Anyway this piece is dedicated to my very good friend Carlos Salgado who was in my gallery yesterday as I was working on this painting. On seeing the paintings for "Hope for the Children" he was so moved by the intensity that he straight away decided to bid for "Puna - The eyes of Nepal".
This is what this World needs, more intensity, passion and the willingness to help others, especially the children.
