Beyond the double entendre of its title, Chums is an allegorical painting that speaks about the tenuous nature of relationships. Not only do many relationships ‘hang by a thread’, but friendships are often destroyed when one or both of the ‘chums’ pollute their environment.

Donald’s true passion has forever been art. Portraying the links between science/nature and art is central to his being - he seeks to discover the 'architecture' of the natural world and how living things (including humans) ‘fit’ in, thus creating an awareness and greater appreciation of the somewhat 'invisible'.
"I work towards the preservation of wonder, the 'wonder' of nature, and the 'wonder' that each of us carried in our hearts as children which sometimes evaporates with age. I want viewers to not only value and become conscious of the beauty that surrounds us, but also the beauty within."
