Why do I paint……………When I see a scene, a person, an object I will immediately feel a desire to draw what I see.  It is a part of me….I have to paint.  There is just no way around it.  If too long of time goes by that keeps me away from my art I become anxious and it becomes apparent I better set aside time to create.  The process envelops me and before I know it hours have slipped by.  But it doesn’t have to be just drawing or painting, sculpture is another form of expression.  No matter what the media I use, I always find pleasure in my work.
