I love to paint and draw but photography is still one of my passions. My first camera was soooo old, I just remember I had to put a flash in the front after each photo I took. I then progressed to a Pantex K-1000. I still have it today.

I have taken a few pictures in the last few days. I hope you like them.

Never at rest

What really defines a person? 

Are we that happy person when everything is going well?

Are we that angry dolt that no one wants to be around when times are tuff? 

I have to tell you that this is one of the hardest times of my life. I had to close my business that was losing money and now I am looking for a job in the worst economy I have ever seen. Some days I want to be that angry person and scream at the world. Other days I want to just close my eyes and wish it all away.

Then there is reality. I tell myself to take it day by day and not to worry, this will all pass.   Let me tell you, that is easier said than done. I am learning to take each day a bit at a time. For instance I have enjoyed picking up my boys from school. This may seem small to some people but I never really got to do that before. It is so great to see their faces light up when they see me. I also try to do nice things for people each day. I will go out of my way to get a door for someone or pick up something that they have dropped. That actually makes me feel better. The one thing I think that is the most important that I do is keep a smile on my face. God has blessed me with three amazing boys and a wife that is the world to me.

Looking for work is so very emotional. I haven’t had much time to paint or draw. However I know I need to make time to do it. It is one of the things in life that quits my mind.

I am writing this as much for myself as anything.

Be positive. Never look back. Always go forward. No regrets.

I sure admire those of you who make a living as an artist. That is sooooo awesome.

Here is a Drawing I did. Some times interpretation is the best part.

If someone is not sure what you want to do with your life… Follow your dreams. It’s the only advice I really have. I wish I would have followed my artistic dreams when I was young. The important thing is that I finally am.

Trying to discover who I am as a painter is a big question. I love abstract because it is a way that I can let it all out. When I paint seines of floral paintings it is more rewarding. I know time is a key factor on what I will mostly do. I know many of you have gone through what I am going through. I am working on some new abstract wood paintings. Here are some of the photos I took today.

36 days..13 hours..38 minutes.

This is what I have learned about myself in the past 36 days. I have made it a priority to paint and in doing so I am learning just how much I love it. I find that I am able to lose myself from all the worries of this world when I paint. This is my passion. This will end up defining me.

I have had a tuff week at work. Business is very slow.

At times I feel like worry and anxiety might take me over but then I put everything back into perspective.  I am blessed.

We all worry about money to some extent but really when it is all said and done what will people remember about us?  That we had money? I try to have as much fun as I possibly can with my three amazing boys and beautiful wife. That’s what really brings me joy. What I want them to remember about me is that we always had fun no matter what the circumstances.

I try to share a little about me so that people can see where I am coming from.

Here is another piece of me.


I call this one alone.
