Since I was a a young child anything art intrigued me. I loved that I could draw using my God given talent. I was the only one of my friends that had this gift. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I met other artists. As artists we were outcasts among our age group. I relished this distinction. I read about art, I admired artists in history as well as fellow artists among my friends. My father had taught me at an early age as he too was an artist. He seemed to understand my sensitivity to the arts.
Today I watch more than my share of art documentaries, where I learn about the masters. I read about art when ever I can. Every day I either paint or do something regarding my art. Modern watercolour masters are a positive influence of my style. I also challenge my skills by touching on the abstract from time – to – time.
One other benefit of painting in that it relieves me of different ailments. Art diminishes mental challenges like depression, anxiety, migraines. I’ve been investigating the benefit of offering art therapies to help those afflicted with these ailments. As you can see my interest in art is wide ranging.
