I paint because I love story telling!

When I paint I don’t know if I was in front of the easel 30 minutes or 4 hours, I couldn’t tell you. I believe that paintings; open doors to something that makes us wonder, allows our minds to travel, bring about joy. I believe paintings instigate inner-self growth. I believe that paintings have the power to expose our greatness. I believe that paintings bring joy and happiness. I believe art can bring about change, where a painting can change someone’s day, where a day out sketching in the park can inspire someone’s life, “look dad a real artist”. This little boys comment certainly brightened my day. I believe that when I paint, I move away from my own boundaries, allowing the painting to flow to bring about this marvel of ‘excitement’, new opportunities.
