Long before I was a palette knife painter of tropical beaches, I was quite the avid drawer. I drew all day every day. But not so much anymore. As I replaced my graphite pencils with painting mediums, I took to the sky and haven’t looked back. I just love working with color and wet paints. Which definitely isn’t a bad thing. It just means you have evolved as an artist.
And in light of the holiday season and the New Year, I thought I’d share with you some of my old drawings, dating back to when I was a teenager. I was going through them the other day on the old computer.
Who doesn’t love a good snowman, right?
As the new year approaches, it is a new chance to re-invent ourselves. And I don’t mean in a cliche, cheesy “New Year’s resolution” kind of a way. I’m talking about personal growth. That is what a new year is all about. Getting smarter, better, stronger, and more successful than you were the year before. Becoming a more loving person.
And for us artists, it is another 365 to get our art out into the world and use it to spread joy; to touch other’s souls. Art is such an incredible thing!

2017 will be special for me because I am starting my own art tutorial channel on Youtube! This will give me the chance to truly shine and show the world how I do what I do.
I wish you all love, peace, hope, and wisdom over the next coming year. I hope it is everything you want it to be.
And until next time,
Let’s bring some color into the world!
