Notes about the artist (from bio):

Influenced by the works of Andrew Wyeth, his early paintings consisted mostly of landscapes. After seeing the work of Richard Estes at a show in Boston, MA, Photorealism became his passion. Today his interests are somewhat varied though his main focus is on the “extraordinarily-ordinary”. Mills takes your eye to a place where most would need a magnifying glass. Getting in so tight the viewer can see the stressed metal in a bottle cap or the texture of a newspaper.
