All of David’s paintings come with a legend, but the legends vary as widely as do his interests. David has painted a series on Mother Nature, portraying her in scenes ranging from her explaining the origin of woodpeckers, to fixing the ozone layer, to flying back from an intergalactic party after hearing that the life on Earth had gotten out of hand. David’s most recent inspirations have come from the field of physics. These paintings, too, come with stories. David’s irreverent sense of humour and history has made these paintings interesting and somewhat controversial
