The Work of Gordon Davis
I paint for leisure and enjoyment. I use lots of color, no clouds or dull greys and my theme is always happiness and joy. Like someone said "I don't know what it is but your paintings make me feel good". Most of my work is pleine aire landscapes and flowers, the things people hunt to see. I verge on the side of expressionism pushing a little away from reality My theme is always "Happiness Reigns".
