"This website is like a santuary for me."

Published February 18, 2010

This website is like a sanctuary for me. It keeps me connected to the thoughts of rational thinking people. I'm a life long artist. My father started me off drawing at a very young age. Even in kindergarten the talent was recognized and I received attention for it. Now that I'm 51 yrs old I truly appreciate the role art has been in my life. I've studied Realism at the Atelier in Oakland ,CA. which is run by Mr David Hardy. I thank God I found that place!!! Though my studies there have ended I still feel such a part of that studio. I could probably use another couple of years under his tutalege,we'll see. This website helps me to stay the course. To hold up quality over quantity. To always give my best and to thirst for the knowledge to keep improving. Its like what President Kennedy said about going to the moon. We do it not because its easy but because it is hard.
