I feel like the luckiest person on earth to be able to make my living through selling my paintings. I am a very hard worker and I believe this is the only way to success. I have always been extremely inspired to work hard in my studio. I am a prolific painter and have put well over the "10,000 hours" in my studio.
Something magical takes over when I pick up my paint brush and apply the paint... I feel like something/someone else is moving me to paint... I plan to peak as a painter at 80 then I may start to take it easy :)
