"Collectors often ask if my Foundations of Freedom series is politically motivated, to which I reply 'no'. Although I actively follow what happens in Washington, these paintings are created out of a deep appreciation for our country and a fascination with her history and architecture. I am challenged by the idea of taking some of the most familiar buildings in America and presenting them with a fresh vision. Once the painting process begins, I am concerned mostly with 'how things look'. Can I capture the light reflecting off the moisture in the air? Does the snow look crunchy or soft? Are the tree limbs convincing? Is the architecture accurate? These are the things that concern me." - Rod Chase
