Topic: What is an Artist?
The short and honest answer to this question is that artistic development for each individual varies tremendously. Each person will have different experiences in meeting their objectives and handling their setbacks. Believe me, it takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication to become an artist. It is an exciting roller coaster ride!
I was very young when I felt the desire to draw and create something. Others may not have considered this form of expression until much later in their lives. I know artists who are teachers, doctors, lawyers, and scientists. Many people find that their art form provides the freedom to express themselves in a way that is very different from their current professions.
Creating art can nurture the emotional elements of our soul. It is a beautiful way to express how you see the world!

Exciting to see all your paintings on line. Art is self-expression and comes from a non-analytical part of myself, even though I use analytical methods to create the physical art.

Both of us have benefited from the community of artists here in Corvallis. The permission each of us has felt to flail around in our respective media. It's delightful to see how you have landed "butter side up". With piece after piece that defines highwater marks for what we're trying to do as artists.
