I am an artist. It has taken me several decades to be able to write that. This is not because I thought I wasn’t talented enough or that I didn’t love art, but because my parents insisted that art was just a hobby. They would tell me that art is just an activity you do when you have some time on your hands. I no longer agree with them. I believe that art is part of me and something I must do. It has to be in my life daily.
Now what kind of artist am I? That I don’t have an answer for yet. I thought I was an abstract sculptor, but I find myself doing realistic sculptures. I even thought maybe I am an abstract painter, but now I find myself doing realism in my paintings. I will continue to do art and let the art evolve and hopefully have something to say with my art. I do know one thing…. I am an artist.
