As an artist, I often find people do not understand what I do and why I would do it. To learn to create in different mediums thrills me.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me feel like painting or creating, an uplifting of my moral spirit to a higher good–its lofty, noble even and I love it. Thank you and you know who you are and I will be painting for me. But for now here is one from the recent archive.
