This is where I have decided to put my artwork. And talk about art. Or maybe about something else. Â I’ve been drawing and painting for about 15-20 years, I can’t remember exactly.
I don’t sing because I’m happy; I’m happy because I sing –Â William James
See that painting on the right? It’s one of the first paintings I ever did. I was on the ship and I had nothing else to paint and saw my jacket and backpack hanging on the wall and decided to go for it. Â I still love this painting for several reasons. It was one of the first paintings I had done when I was just getting all of my newly acquired skills together. Â It once hung inÂ a local Starbucks and I priced it at US $125. One day a lady came in and offered to buy it for $75. Â Someone wanted to buy my art! Â But for $75? Â I refused. Â They say she came in almost everyday and tried to get me to come down to $75 and every time I refused. Â I never did sell it, and that’s just fine. I also once tried to get it into the Scottsdale Artists School’s “Best and Brightest” competition and it was rejected. I eventually gave it to my sister. Â It’s an honest painting, and it’s a good painting. You put some investment of yourself inÂ these.
I’ve got a gallery with manyÂ of my works. Â I’ve got aÂ blog which needs some posts in it. Â Hope you find something worthy in here somewhere.
