One must have passion, drive, and focus to succeed in whatever one pursues. Know yourself. When that spark of creativity shows glimpses of itself, grab it, and take it where it wants to go. Focus on your ideas and pursuits, keep them pure and honest. When I get an inspiration, it is the most uplifting feeling I can imagine. If I can capture that feeling in one of my paintings, I feel as if I have traveled to an honest place and taken myself to another level of fulfillment and happiness. Each and every day is a discovery of who I am and where I want to be.
