A quote from Robert Manley, a California native: "Although time and situation have forced me to put aside some of the things of my childhood, my passion for the wild has never diminished. When alone with nature I feel a peace and serenity that can be matched in no other way. If my art can in some way enhance, inspire or maintain continued care and understanding of nature then I will feel successful."
