In conversation with my family, I said, “I am never bored.” My son couldn’t believe it. No! That can’t be true. But I think it is true. There is always something to be creating, or another idea to be working on. I have trouble with not enough hours in the day.
Another advantage, I had a good friend get in a bad motorcycle accident. Now there’s a section for Fathers, Mothers, graduation, birthdays but there isn’t a section on the card aisle that says “Motorcycle Accidents”. You can custom fit a card for all sorts of circumstances. This idea seemed to fit the story of their wreck. That’s the exciting part, to take that idea that pops into your brain and try to get it down on paper and then to see it touch a cord in the mind of the viewer.
Art is a gift that just keeps giving. It makes my life exciting and hopefully I can share some of that excitement which I see in life, with others.
