I paint landscapes and treescapes with a unique pointillism style using dots.
For me, to become an artist got a late start that involves a lifelong process.
Today, in my mid-seventies, as I look back to my childhood years, I clearly see how what I was doing as a kid still holds a constant voice in being an artist today. Back then I roamed the woodlands where I lived and played. The trees were my friends.
Happily, being an artist reconnects me with these friendships that spill out in the fresh air onto my canvas.
A Kid Based Example
As a kid I often sat beside trees. There was a world to explore watching bugs and checking out small plants around the base of any tree. Every tree base was different and interesting.
Today, I still love doing this. And I still sit with trees.
I am a tree sitter more than a tree hugger although hugging is pretty good too.
And in my studio, I am a tree painter.
An Artist Everyday
So I really did change from being a kid everyday to being an artist everyday.
While growing up lots of things got in the way. For a few decades I totally forgot about what I loved doing as a kid.
Gradually I returned to what I loved doing.
