The Journey Begins

Jan 1, 2015

I am an artist! I may not have always recognized myself as one but I've always been an artist. Doing art is my time for self reflection and spiritual communion with God. I am in service to God as an artist. I have a front row seat in the creation of a piece as I submit to the process of discovery my hand guided through the composition. Although I get to sign the piece as my own I know that I am just a tool. This is the year that I will introduce myself to the world. To know me is to know my art. The creation of my art is the most personal statement I can make - I bare my thoughts, feelings and emotions ... my soul. The truth as I know it.

At this point I am far from being able to make a living off of my art. I am quite literally a "Starving Artist". This I know is temporary. I am blessed to have friends and family that are supportive and encouraging. As a first generation father my children are watching. For me to be able to look them in the eye truthfully and tell them that they can be whatever they want to be - I myself, their father, must have the courage to pursuit my own passions. So for them I embark on my journey to fulfill my dreams, ambitions and personal legend. This will be my testimony. The journey begins.
