David’s paintings and etchings develop slowly. This gradual process allows him to become very involved with the subject. Because of this intense and continual observation, he feels he is able make a sensitive and intimate statement about his subjects. He is naturally attracted to realism and approaches his work knowing that both conscious and unconscious influences will impart its direction. David carefully examines the artwork of fellow artists, both past and present, and gains a great enrichment and understanding from those reflections and studies.
