I’m one of the lucky ones. “Art” called to me early in life and gave me a passion that has endured all these years. It stirred my imagination, taught me to be observant, to daydream, and gave a desire to capture it all in one way or another. Inspiration can range from the most simple object or folded fabric to a very detailed idea in my head. Light, color combinations on a plate of fruit can all inspire a future painting. After a lifetime of creating art, my eyes have been trained to catch details when they unfold within sight. To keep from being bored, or boring, I have four basic subject matter ideas that I float between. Still Life, Figures (some portraits), Floral, and Imaginary. Art, what a treasure, I can take it with me, or find it, anywhere I go.
