Mastering The Past
Dedication In Honor of William Bourguereau- Many years ago I purchased the rights to print and/or paint from a select group of past Masters. In life, other than on internet, I have sold many of these as oil paintings and am only now deciding to release a few for purchase as prints, or merely for viewing pleasure. Many are freehand digitally painted, and some are oils, but I will not be releasing the original images I purchased as nothing of me went into those, and I see no honor or dedication in such. All took me over 100 hours each to faithfully reproduce to the very best of my ability. When studying, this was part of my fine art studies and for me, it is not only an honor to do, it has also been a massive and intensive learning curve. I hope you enjoy viewing these works reproduced by my hand in honor, and dedication, to past Masters who showed we artists to follow, the light to fine art. I don't believe for one second I have done one of these Masters their due, but it was a most beautiful pleasure to try.
