What talent I have in art was given to me by God, only to share with the world. I improve my talents with practice and patience. The sheer joy of painting and creating something from a blank sheet of paper is worth the effort. I want people to enjoy and see the beauty in this world and bring a smile to their face. Pleasing art can help do that. It gives me a greater joy when I can freely give a painting to a friend; a watercolor painting just looks more appealing then a photograph.
