If I had the chance to live my life again, I would change a few things -- yes, I certainly would. I suppose everyone would say that. I mean who hasn’t done things that hurt us, or that just didn’t work out at the time -- Well, I know they are all learning lessons and yet, I could have skipped a few!!! Besides, who wants to be too smart anyway??? Keeping the regrets to a bare minimum is the goal here!
I always plan a lot of paintings that I want to paint -- it’s a lifetime of paintings that I envision. Then, I change my mind and do whatever comes up. It do like to plan though, because then I feel sort of organized and I strive to be as “organized” as possible. Structure is not an adjective that can be used to describe my life, and that is perfectly okay with me. I am an “Artist” -- one who is destined to create and therefore not entirely responsible for structure.
My aim is to paint powerful paintings this year -- paintings that have feeling, merit, a story and that bring out the feelings of joy and laughter to remind us of the importance of life and our relationships. I want to capture the precious memories of life that give us inner peace and love.
