and I call myself and artist
"Reflecting on life" (self portrait) oil on canvas 24"x 48" NFS ©2009
Without creativity there is nothing.
Finding it’s way up through the cracks in the sidewalk
a weed reaches the sunlight and survives.
Through the creative process, I too, find my way.
I exist through the life I discover.
I search for value in light and dark.
I absorb the splendid color that surrounds me.
I feel the texture and sense the fragrance.
I value lines in perspective and the perspective of color.
I am inspired by nature, humanity and structure.
Through a variety of medium I find creativity.
Employing brush and pigment, I am at peace.
Through painted surface, bent metal and sculpted clay, I survive.
I explore my creativity through music and the written word.
Through my art, I find myself.
I call myself an artist.
