statement from the artist

Daniel paints with imagination but not from imagination.

Each landscape painting is inspired from an actual place.

He creates composition in a simplified form with designs of

shapes and patterns found in the nature world. You could

speculate his designs are influenced by Fauvism. Daniel is

definitely a colorist. With a dry-brush technique, he

applies acrylic paints in layers to develop bold vivid colors

to bring out eye-catching contrast in his designs. It is his

own whimsical interpretation of each individual scene that

sets his paintings apart from typical landscape painting.
