"The reality is that artists have a gigantic hand in injecting
the beauty and vitality we all enjoy in present day life.
I wrote an article about this very subject: the role of the
artist in society and how their creative impact is broad and deep.
"Without the beauty continually brought into being by the many
players in the various genres of art, this world would be a dull
soulless place. My personal role and responsibility as an artist
is to not only create beautiful work that uplifts others, but to
also actively support my fellow artists.
"Art is my job, my life and my love,and I wouldn’t have it any other way."

My client's testimonial:
"Thank you so much. I love the artwork! My sisters are jealous and want to ship you to Ohio to do their houses. Thanks again, it's just what I imagined!" - S.M.
Happiness like this is what makes my job so very worthwhile. :D
I'm back! Here are two shots from today's progress. The first is my scene every morning. I love it. :D
And here's today's image of panel #1. Still more work to do but it's coming along!
I'll be back at the walls tomorrow around my usual time of 6:30am; I'm getting excited as I can feel completion day coming soon. :D More tomorrow!
Well, the inevitable day arrived where I decided to make a change. I wasn't happy with the grapefruit segments on Panel #2 (with the curling rind), so painted over it and quickly began the detailing process anew. I think, all in all, it will end up looking more "correct".
My day today was cut short so am hoping to spend a bit more time painting tomorrow.
And here are the full panels after today's short time at the walls:
I hope you all have an excellent (and quick!) Friday tomorrow so that we can all jump into our weekends. And again, thanks for your interest. It is appreciated. :D
