Kewaskum based artist, Daniel Gerhartz's painterly portfolio compiled into this first volume. It talks about his childhood and what motivated him to go into the studio arts.

Sometimes I set out to capture a certain sense of light or to develop a composition in a particular color harmony or tonal range. In other instances, I have conceptualized less before beginning.
