I simply struggle with who I am, and honestly what my purpose is on this planet....
I have read so many amazing stories from other artists who have stated that they have been artists for as long as they can remember....drawing and painting since childhood.
I can't actually remember when I became so infatuated with art, but I know that it is a gigantic part of my life. I am completely in love with color...and well, creating.

Fear however sneaks into my studio more often than it is invited, and good old fashioned "excuses" come right in behind it (you know..I really should be doing ______, or whatever it is)...its time to put them both in their proper places so that I can get on with things that I have "dreamed" about.

Ummm...lets see here....8 more days til summer vacation!!
Wow, I am rambling this morning...Enjoy your weekend!
Until next time,
the art of growing old - As I see the days pass, I realize I am growing old. As I see a few gray hair now sprouting out of my head and the subtle changes on my body, I realize I ...
