Through my life-long journey as an artist, painting for me has been a retreat to enjoy. Of course, creativity is not a restful thing and is much like running a race. You don’t always win, but It’s very rewarding when you do. A pianist practices until they can play Chopin from memory. The obsession is not fame or fortune but the satisfaction of accomplishment.
My goal was to paint classical realism and after learning to use several types of media, oil became my preference. There will always be a higher plateau to reach, a never ending need to improve and the joyful journey.
