Dear Roly, Your paintings remind me very much of Dodge Macknight. The style, like his, is vivid but at the same time there’s a sort of subdued element, like something lying underneath that’s calming. Was he an inspiration to you?

Roly:  He wasn’t but it looks like he was drawn to some of the same things that I have been and have made pictures of.  I actually had never seen his work until you pointed him out.  He was really something.  I’d bet that he worked outside a lot…what I was able to look at seemed like it has a lot of fresh air blowing through the frame.  Dodge Macknight…that’s a good name.  Thanks for the introduction.
