Artists get suck. I was.

My son was seven or eight years old at the time. He loved to draw and was incredibly creative when constructing space ships out of Legos.

I asked him one day what I should paint. When he said a turtle I though “yeah, I can whip that right out”. Do you know how many plates are in a turtles shell? And the reason for painting two?

The two turtles are a symbol for long lasting companionship. This painting is primarily browns and greens.

It was quite flattering when an interior designer said “I must have this for my son’s room”.

Art can be contagious, like laughter or singing. When viewing art you can feeling it almost without thought. Encouragement is the greatest gift someone can give to an idea. It can arrive in may forms: self inspired; with a purchase; or spoken to someone else. I hope beauty surrounds you.
