After I had been painting for I while I got up enough nerve to let people, besides my immediate family, know what I was doing. Once you start showing your work the labels start to get thrown around. I questioned whether I was an "artist". It dawned on me one day that I didn't need to worry about the label, "artist". What I had come to realize was that my label was , "passion". It is that constant drive to express the way life makes me feel through my art. I want to pass on to the observer of my work that fantastic feeling of "living life" that I so often experience. I try to pass on the feeling through my work. My tool, COLOR. My son use to tell me when I first started to paint that" I needed to use more color " I couldn't agree with him more.
