There's so much to see. Everywhere. Cameras capture exactly the light that is reflected by things, but when we see, our view is colored by emotions, emotions that are influenced by memories, fears, hopes and even dreams.

Have you ever taken a photo of something that mesmerized you, only to get home and find that you have captured only a pale replica?  I believe that paintings can bridge the gap between reality and those “super-charged” images that excite us.
