Joy of doing..

This is true...we take color or any type of media and push it around on a surface to create an image, abstract or realistic or anywhere in between and show this to the world through exhibitions, social media, publications etc...to be judged? Admired? Criticized? Applauded? Envied? Rewarded? 
Or just because it’s what we do for no other reason than the pure joy of doing?
Stay courageous!

Bye 2017

This came in the mail at the end of the year...super excited to be part of another British publication. And it has a rooster painting of mine in there...fitting since I just concluded the year of the rooster and filled 12 sketchbooks with 365+ feathered friends...Phew...what to focus on this year? I'll let that unfold as it may...no set plans as of yet...Happy New Year!
