When you draw, paint, sculpt, photograph or in any way render a subject for art, by observing it critically, you rediscover it. A portrait of a person you've known for decades, the mountain-side behind your childhood home, your cat...
All impart an inner version of themselves as subjects that daily interaction doesn't illuminate.
Over the years I've been quite fortunate to cross some pretty zesty characters, bright spirits and downright fun people to create the encouraging landscape all around me. Combined with a love for what I do, the line between work and leisure all but vanishes and it is indeed always..."5 O'clock Somewhere."
When being thankful doesn't quite feel like enough, I hope that some of my work can raise a smile or trigger a good memory to help (in some ridiculously small way) to pay it forward. One life.
