Telling The Story - Communicating the Joy of Creativity

Here I am at the Marmora village Art Show. It might have been the first in the history of the little village. I don't know.

But, here I stand, (wearing my black and white sweater) doing something I like so much: telling the story behind my paintings.

Art is a sublime form of communiction. Do you like that line. Its yours. I am likely not being very creative in making it up.

But, when we paint we draw from within ourselves. I enjoy telling people about that process.
Explaining nuances within pictures, answering questions, and sharing with them what turns me on as a painter.
