I am pretty sure that Photorealist Ran Ortner needs to come to my house and paint one of my walls. Either than or I need one of his paintings. So magnificent! I am not sure if I have even seen paintings that capture the essence and power of the ocean like this. I stumbled across him when putting together a power point for one of my classes. The kids really enjoyed his work as well! Although they all kind of looked at me like I was crazy for starting a photorealism unit.
