When I was 16, my high school art teacher told me to continue with art no matter what my choice would be as a career. It took me ten years, but I finally went back to what I was destinted to do. Those ten years were far from wasted. I've expierenced more than most people expierence during their lifetimes. I've been an EMT for seven years. When I began that profession, I was only 21. At that age, you know it all, but the day to day of working such a job proves the contrary. It reconnected me with life. It reconnected me with how fragile everything truely is. It opened my eyes on so many topics. I remember patients names. I remember their stories about their lives and of their families lives. The admission of an old man saying that every second he is alive is the most beautiful moment in his exsistence. I remember that, if nothing else is true, that every second changes everything.
I hope I can reconnect you with the same thing. Slow you down from the everyday hustle. Make you take a deep breath and realize it's all just a ride. Take life all in and remember the day to day moments. Regardless of the style of painting, they are moments. They are a snapshot of the paitners thoughts. They are a snapshot of time.
