Description Let it begin with me.A man came home to sleep it off after drinking more than his fair share. However, his young son who had missed him wanted his attention.'Read me a story, Dad,' the boy pleaded. 'Give me a few minutes to relax and then I will but, as the father was about to make a promise that he would not keep, an idea came to him. He ripped out a full page from the magazine on the coffee table, which had a picture of the world map and tore it into small pieces. As he finished tearing the pieces of paper, he challenged his son to put the picture together again. Then I will read you a story, the father promised. Feeling confident that he had bought himself ample time to rest and sober up, he placed the pile of torn papers on the kitchen table.Only minutes passed and his son called from the kitchen; I did it Dad. To his astonishment, dad found the world picture completely assembled. How did you know where all these countries belong on the map and how could you do it so quickly? He asked the boy. His son smiled and answered; there was a photo of a man on the other side of the page, so I put the man back together and found Id put the world back together too.

At eight years old in the late 50’s, I started private training in traditional oil techniques. To this day, I owe my appreciation to my mother, who has since passed away. Through considerable personal sacrifice, she nurtured my artistic talent and provided me with the tools and circumstances to begin my creative journey - the journey that I still follow. I cherish the memories of the art exhibits and museums that we visited in Manhattan. I later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's and up until the late 80's, I exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. Presently, I reside in Florida with my loving wife, who I've been married to for thirty years. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, I turned to creating digital hand painted images and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that I had once found in oils. - Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz)
