Dedicated to the brave discoverers of the 'New and Brave World'

     odern day artists often place themselves into separate categories such as Portrait artists, Landscape artists, Still-life artists, etc. and that is fine ... but they are afraid to break out of that box. The Masters of the past loved to paint everything, they were savvied in various genres of painting and referred to themselves as Artists, with a capital "A".  Furthermore, the ultimate goal of any artist was, of course, to create a grand multi-figurative painting -  the kind of work where you can truly face the challenges all around to test your knowledge and high artistic skills, acquired through traditional training, and explore yourself as an Artist.
