Art has been a part of my life since I was a boy in Portland, Oregon, an area reknown for its devotion to nature's blessings. I find the experience of creating something with my own hands, my imagination, my heart, to be both exhilarating and challenging. We all need challenges in our lives, and the challenge of the journey is always so much more important than the goal itself. During this journey we hopefully learn something more about ourselves and, in my case, the subjects I'm painting. In future posts I'll tell you the story of how my paintings came to be, their life story if you will.
I hope you will join me in this journey. Please feel free to respond with your thoughts and your questions.
