I paint because I love it!
The way I paint could be compared to the way a student with an intense craving for knowledge takes notes from a good teacher.
The writing down of thoughts can help solidify the lesson in the mind of the student. In a similar way the matching and laying down of colors, values, and shapes can help the artist to see and learn more about his subject.
God's awesome creation is my subject, and the paintings are my notes.
I hope they bring you some enjoyment.
