I prefer the realistic side of art. When viewing a realistic painting I enjoy getting lost in the detail the artist used to create his piece. How the artist painted the light or shadow to create a mood or the fine detail in the veins of a leaf. While hiking it is common for me to stop and look at the detail of something nature has provided as if I am seeing it for the first time. The beauty and perfection that I view is mind blowing. Birds and plants are the subjects that I find the most interesting. It is easy to see the details on a plant that give its individuality but a bird is another matter. By creating highly detail realistic pieces I am trying to inspire the viewer to take a moment and enjoy the beauty nature has to offer.
