Rob Diffenderfer, Baltimore Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I am truly amazed by the colors of life. I like black and white also and feel that there are certain situations that are good for black and white however there are the other situations that just scream color Its the blood reds, the tranquil blues, and the forest greens that excite me. Its the fiery oranges and yellows mixed with magentas and blues that pour out of a sunset like paint on a canvas that get burned into my memory. I like life as I see it and I see it in color!
