Gates on the Path, 2004, Tom Fairs, Hampstead Heath sketchbook, image 5 1/2 x 3 in., London, UK. "My interest is primarily in things seen: landscape, interiors, still life where, in the light of the imagination, the commonplace may be transformed into the extraordinary. The ever-present transforming principle moves me. I have no theories, no special techniques and no information. I try to achieve a brief glimpse of the implicit order that lies beneath what we perceive as reality."
