OK, I give up.  I just don’t have “one” thing I do.


Nothing strikes terror in the heart of an artist like the words, as spoken by their instructor, “By now you should have developed a style.”  Gasp, or even Eeeep is a very common response to this statement.  This may be followed by “WHAT?” or “IS HE KIDDING?!!” and perhaps “Sh*t!”

So I tried, I really did, to develop “a” style.  I think right now, I have between one and five styles on which I am focusing.

After being layed off a job of 20 years, I went back to school to complete my Bachelor’s of Art, in ART!  Tah Da!


Now I am in business for myself, and darned happy about it!  When more of the money rolls in, I want to go back for a Masters Degree.  Not so much for the degree, but for the learning. Two years was just not enough.  I want more of what is in the heads of my teachers.  Also, there is nothing like art school or art classes, and being in a community of artists. 


Until then, I am going to paint my little heart out. (:>)
