Movement happens in natural elements as well as in animals. This wave is caught in the moment it is cresting, and curling toward the shore. There is internal color of gold and tan because of the influence of the sand pulled up into the wave, and the sparkle of light hitting the spray and the foamy surf. I painted in a subtly blue tinted white and created depth and sparkle with glazes in blue, red and yellow. —Donald Ryker

Donald Ryker has been painting since his teens. He was inspired to begin painting when he discovered he could use a hard hat on his head to direct his brush. He has lived his life with cerebral palsy and was thrilled to find an outlet for his creativity and a way to communicate his love of life, and his message to people that anyone can accomplish things in life if they are creative and persistent; there is always a way to find the positive in life. Ryker's paintings reflect his joy in life, and his desire to connect. His artwork inspires others with his choice of color and ability to draw in his viewer.
