Artist's statement
"I see myself as a realist figurative artist; I use direct painting or classical approach, hoping that the technique I choose will reflect my interaction with each person I portray. 

People around are a great source of inspiration, I find that in portrait and figure there is always something left unexplored. A special joy for me is to paint women of all ages; I'm fascinated by this (possibly) life-time project and I'm sure I will enjoy every moment. "

The Elderly Leaves Series – David’s favourite time of the year is the fall, when the leaves change colour. His intent is to illustrate their beauty and dignity.

Weeds & Grasses Series – Most roadside weeds and grasses are the “other” flowers in the city. They are the forgotten plants that populate the roadside. He admires their utilitarian structure and tolerance of the elements.

If a picture paints a thousand words, then artists are very fortunate to convey so much on one piece of canvas. A painter may paint for a variety of reasons, but whatever the reason, we can unequivocally agree that the painter, through his or her works, will communicate something. We all have, or ought to have, a sense of responsibility to improve upon whatever we do in life. Communication is the first step.
