Leland Castro's Statement
" The beauty of the Creators hands makes art captured on canvas or other mediums is a lifetime passion"
I range from surreal to realism and to impressionism style, to me this is what I feel and others look when they see my paintings. Growing up in the 60"s to me was the best years , any things happened during those times John Kennedy elected President of USA but was assassinated also his brother, Muhammed Ali ( Casius Clay) winning heavyweight boxing crown, etc. and the Beatles forever changing the world with their music. They are part of my life and paintings, people think I'm a freak but so are millions worldwide, also living and growing in beautiful Hawaii, with the gorgeous sceneries, sunsets, and oceans also captured my emotions to paint the. But there are so many others things in this world that every artist will try to capture, mines are these mentioned.
