INTRODUCTION

How is it that the artist can create on canvas a picture that to the viewer is a door that he can step through. Once through that door, the viewer experiences from all of his senses: the gentle breeze, the warmth of the sun, the sounds of laughter, the smells of Autumn, or an emotion. All of these wonderful sensations seemed to have been felt through all the other different senses; but actually were felt through the one sense, the sight. This is the beauty experienced through the eyes of the beholder. And this is indeed the gift of art.
