It is said that the average person only looks at a work of art for 15 – 30 seconds. With this piece, as with others in my series, “The Smokes,” I hope to challenge that. My objective is to engage the viewers and to let their eyes wander and discover what’s there, besides just smoke.

After many years of painting impressionist landscapes, I felt it was time to step outside the box and try something very different. With “The Smokes,” there are no rules to follow, no limitations, only complete creative freedom.

How long did you look?
