Life is good!

"The most vital things in the look of a landscape endure only for a moment.  Work should be done from memory: memory of that vital moment." - Robert Henri

Landscapes, the land surrounding us seems to inspire so many artists!  Yet, how is it that so many of us artists interpret it in our own way?  That is the beauty of art!

Every  professional painter, sculptor, artist is certainly influenced or inspired by outside findings - how can we not be, this world is filled with wonderful things!?  But it is the true artist when working that shuts out all those influences and focuses and works from deep within, making their art their own.

I am so thankful to have had so many artists come before me and influence my painting style, yes, that is how I got here.  But after their inspiration, I have worked hard and dedicated my life to painting - someone posted to me on facebook yesterday "you have  a good life"  YES!  Life is good - for all of us if we really look around!
