NOTES: Set in one of England's many beautiful regions, Blackmore Vale, in the county of Dorset, contains some of the most scenic landscapes in the country. The Vale is a wide, breathtaking valley primarily used for dairy agriculture dotted with small villages and farms. This amazingly detailed image by Chase features Gold Hill, which is a famous hill and street in Shaftesbury in the county. This picturesque, quaint village of steep cobbled streets is one of England's most photographed and painted scenes; the village has been featured on many book covers..

Rod Chase takes hundreds of photographs of each of his subjects, combining them with historical photographs, to produce a timeless quality in each of his works. "Being a photo-realist, I am dependent on finding accurate reference material for each painting," the artist explains. Chase works with acrylics on canvas spending hundreds of hours on each painting as he strives to present a fresh and unique view to familiar subjects. Chase is very excited about painting our nation s capitol. On a recent trip, he spent a week photographing Washington s landmarks, including The White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court building. Rising very early each day, Chase photographed the dramatic light of sunrise, and late in the day he revisited several sites to capture the soft, moody glow of twilight. Between sessions, he researched old photos at the National Archives and the Library of Congress. Over the next few months, Chase will create dramatic, awe-inspiring scenes of Washington for his collectors by combining antique and modern photography with just the right touch of artistic license. Chase was born and raised in Canada after marrying a Texas girl, he moved to the United States. He and his wife, Debbie, have four children, who are home-schooled. The family recently moved from the Houston area to the Texas Hill Country.
