Painting is my passion. My sandbox. It's where I like to play. But painting is also hard work. It's about being persistant and not giving up. It's also about taking risks and thinking outside the box. Most of all, painting is really, really challenging. I believe the Chinese truism that if you do something 10,000 times, you will become a master. Today, I am simply a student. After my 10,000th painting, who knows..... I still have a ways to go. So let's get to it!!
