It was the Impressionists that first inspired me. When I saw their original paintings in person, I reveled in their colors and saw how the artists applied their paints. I threw myself into my own paintings with a fury and explored my own ways to paint that pushed me into different realms of visions. I am as excited and thrilled today about painting as I was when I first started. When I immerse myself into the next painting, I am always surprised by the results of my own work. My inner vision propels me to constantly develop and refine my own unique style of painting. This part of my life will continue unabated until I can no longer lift a brush. I am smitten and committed to the work.
