Samuel uses thickly applied paint that give his works texture and draw you into the nature he is creating.

“I consider myself a colorist, in the Abstract Expressionist and Impressionist styles.  I interpret God’s gift of nature using a free form that is both simple and extensive in shapes, compositions, colors and subjects. When I make my art, I focus on my imagination at that time and place, using nature as my guide.”~ Samuel
