Artist Statement:  "My images are photographic reality by origin and impressionist by presentation. They are refined with special digital techniques to create a softer purer effect. This approach produces a sense of vibrancy that cannot be achieved with traditional photography. I want the images to represent reality while adding an ambience of emotion that transcends realism. I believe that Impressionist photography can reveal what the eye and heart sees that goes beyond what the camera can record. I have experimented with many Impressionist techniques to simplify or intensify color and affect, and the result is what you see here -- an approach to art using photography" -- Don O. Thorpe
