Painting is my passion. I wake up thinking of how much paint I can put on a canvas that day.
I like bright colors and lots of them. Mostly I focus on florals on landscapes but sometimes venture off on a whim and paint some geometrics. Lately I have been focusing on rusty cars and zooming in on small areas of cars and blowing them up really big. I think it's kinda cool.
I Travel around the country with my handy DSLR camera taking pictures of whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. Take a gander at the pages in the gallery and let me know what you think of the images. I use these images for inspiration in my painting.
While some get nervous traveling alone, I find peace on the road. I tend to let my mind drift and that is where the inspiration comes from.
I have no problem pulling off to the side of the road to take photographs of something that catches my eye. Passersby give me odd looks at times but I just smile and wave.
Don't think of this as my third favorite thing to do. It just so happens to be my next adventure in creativity. No, I must admit, I'm not that good at it so don't be surprised if the excitement leaves something to be desired.
Oh, these little tidbits of wisdom just happen to be glimpses of insight that spring out at the most inopportune times. I try to jot them down so I don't forget them. Sometimes I remember the good ones. Sometimes I don't.
Why I do what I do...
I drink coffee. A lot of coffee.
I take a lot of pictures. I need to take a lot of pictures so I have stuff to paint.
I paint a lot!
I do these things because I can.
I do these things because I want to.
I do what I want to because it makes me happy. In the past I did things for other people because it made them happy. I got tired of making them happy and not being happy myself so I started making myself happy instead. I've got a theory about this though. If you tell me I can't do something I am going to do everything I can to prove you wrong.
My mother told me I've been doing what I want since the day I came out of the womb. So the story goes!
