I received a wonderful email from Robert Cook about wanting to buy one of my works for his wife. I sell on line so at first the email sounded legitimate BUT THEN… I noticed some grammar mistakes and was suddenly uneasy. I did some research and found a web site and another site with scammer names,

Apparently these scammers are preying on the fact that as artist, we would love to say we sold a piece of work. Its amazing on how many people get these emails. Tell your friends, check out the web site exposing the scams and remember if it seems to good to be true IT IS!

In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
