Why do I paint……………When I see a scene, a person, an object I will immediately feel a desire to draw what I see. It is a part of me….I have to paint. There is just no way around it. If too long of time goes by that keeps me away from my art I become anxious and it becomes apparent I better set aside time to create. The process envelops me and before I know it hours have slipped by. But it doesn’t have to be just drawing or painting, sculpture is another form of expression. No matter what the media I use, I always find pleasure in my work.
