“My art is for all people,” said Guyton. “I just want to paint what I see and what I feel…a lot of the time, what I do. It’s not necessarily pretty, its real life, real life, it’s what I see.”
These studies were created during Tyree’s two trips to Germany between 1996-1999, when he had a chance to observe the Black Forest. Although the studies never evolved into larger works, the series depicts a mixed media/watercolor abstract representation of the famed dense forest
"I strive to be a part of the solution. I see and understand how order is needed in the world and in our individual lives. My experiences have granted me knowledge of how to create art and how to see beauty in everything that exists."
