A self-proclaimed Romantic Period. Although the landscape remains, it now has become but a surreal backdrop. His family, as subject matter, slowly gives way, for a time, to dreamy human-like creatures in a fantasy setting. Colours now were vibrant, fresh and clean.

These works have become more impressionistic, are very emotional, and, when the viewer is given time, will create a very cerebral dialogue, which has made these wonderful, life companions for those who have been moved to collect the works.
