|"When I discovered Clayton's paintings in a Scottsdale gallery last February, I was amazed at the strength of the brushwork, the skillful control of form and composition, and the perceptive view of the subject matter. I was stunned to learn how young he was and how many masterful paintings he had created. I immediately commissioned an article on his work and scheduled one of his paintings for the cover of the December, 2005 issue of American Artist. I'm certain other editors, collectors, curators, and artists will be just as amazed by his talents when they discover him."
