David Benfield, Bdintsi, Dobrich District Bulgaria Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement Semi retired now living in Bulgaria for 5 years, and trying to work through all the art ideas I never had enough time for when earning a living got in the way. " I love oil paint, coloured pencils and pens as much as my camera, scanner and digital imaging software. I try to be open to any means to reach the final image whether for a client or in my personal work. I see no difference between a photograph, an oil landscape, an abstract, a piece of pottery or a sculpture as a piece of art. If you like it, if it gives you pleasure, intrigues or inspires you, connects to you in some way then buy it for these reasons. "
