Lucky to have had David as my professor at Swain School of Design back in the late 80's. His passion and knowledge for painting is reflected in his work. As an educator and mentor, he was "that person" who changed and enlightened so many young artists. Being in his presence was joyful and intimidating. I look at this painting everyday and it is also joyful and intimidating. Thank you, David.
