In Idaho, Maui or Montana, Brent finds greatest satisfaction in watching mirthful birds, listening to the chirps of cricket or the rustling of dried leaves. But nothing could probably surpass the blissful joy he experiences when he anchors his boat midstream listening intently to the burbling of the flowing water. And those moments of joyful existence is translated by him on canvas. The many symphonies of the river captured from dawn to dusk by the artist, sparkling from inside the frame to immerse the audience in perfect tranquillity.
