Roy BreckenridgePointillism in Ink
My first career in the U.S. Army enabled me to see the world – to experience the beauty of many countries, their people and cultures. I have also experienced, first hand, the death and destruction of war, of how inhuman humans can become. My art derives from that unique pallet of life.
Whether I portray an eagle or the emotions engendered by the sight of our magnificent flag, my goal is always to build a rapport with the viewer – to help them understand the importance of the life which surrounds them. By increasing the understanding of others, I follow the beliefs of my ancestors that believed that we must maintain a balance in our lives and the world. By creating positive beauty, I try to help balance the negative things which surround us.
In parting, I offer to you my art and an old Blessing: “May You Always Walk In Beauty.”
