Why We Create

We create because we are created.  In creativity we experience some of the joy of the creator.  Truth is absolute, but each individual experiences the truth and the world around them in a unique and individual way.   I paint plein air, outdoors, because I am inspired by the creation and love to capture a moment in time with a painting that gives a unique and individual impression of that fleeting moment, which those viewing my painting will in turn enjoy through their own unique and individual eye and mind.   I approach life as an artist taking my life-time of experience to examine the puzzle facing me and pursuing a creative solution.  People ask, “how long did it take you to paint that painting?”  The honest answer “A lifetime.”
