 The horse symbolizes strength, loyalty, and freedom. These three series are all inspired by horses: Fantasia Series is inspired by Berbere horse celebrations; Polo came from the beauty of the sport;  Rodeo came from the music of Aaron Copeland.

 Claude DeBussy's classical composition "Arabesque" was the main inspiration of the Arabesque and Barbouillage Series. These Series  represent the segue and breakthrough of artistic style, leaving traditional behind and flowing into a more modern and abstract style.

 These Series represent the roots of Clemente's art style. Somewhat indicative of what people wanted as art,  the Floral, Landscape and Personage Series show a much more traditional style of art.

Many of these pieces go hand in hand with a particular series, or represent a new experiment or technique. Some are even more important because they are studies for a new series and become the basis for what will come next.

These Series are the product of every day inspiration, passing whims, and studies. Though these series are small, they are still precious in their own way.
