GREETINGS TO ALL:
I have the included the usual rhetoric and a couple of bragging rights. I have tried to keep it simple and only one page. There are the lists of shows, jobs and awards, but nothing has helped my own personal artwork, than my current business; which is painting parties. It is the latest art and entertainment craze and I have discovered a renewed love of painting. I must finish a painting in an hour in order to teach it to others in two. No longer am I fussing, adding and correcting, long after a painting is finished. I am slamming them out and loving it!
Welcome to my artwork, thanks for reading.
