Every Piece of Art Still Amazes Me!
This painting is very special to us. And it's very personal and private. I can only tell you that it's purpose is to give hope and inspiration to people who are in difficult situations. If you know it's story, and the people involved...then you know how much meaning it carries. Not only to us, but to the surrounding community.
This painting was a blessing for us. I hope you feel the genuine care embedded in this priint when you hang it on your wall.
My biggest artistic influences were my great uncle and my cousin Christine. My great uncle worked on a Clay medallion sculpture portrait of me. My cousin Christine showed me how to shade. The sun coming through the window on a candlestick. She said to look at the candlestick us if it was a photograph negative. That made sense to me.
I never really did decide that I wanted to be an artist I just was.
The advice I would give to other artists. Inspire each other. Find artists that fit and can carry each other along with positive feed back. That is what will keep you creating, painting and drawing.
