I Am So Honored.......

Sue Smith of Ancient Artist has invited me to be part of her "Sunday Salon Series". Each week Sue sets down with an artist and does a casual interview segment...asking the hard questions we all want to know.

Sue says... "Artists have always come together into groups where they share common passions, philosophies, argue over content and inspire each other into greater accomplishments." Sue also believes "...that an artist cannot create in isolation, nor can he or she take the necessary risks without motivations, challenges, and inspirations found in these groups."

I've been following Sue's Sunday Salon Series almost from the beginning...don't remember just how I found her, but I'm so glad I did. I've really enjoyed reading about the lives of these established artists. I'm quite new at this and I'm not sure where I fit into this group...but I am so honored to be included.

Exurb from the interview:
"Many people come into my tent at art fairs saying they drew as children. I tell them that if God gave them the talent it is still there...He never takes it back. I also tell them that I didn't want to end up in a nursing home rocking back and forth in my rocking chair saying "I bet I could have done it if I had just tried"!

While your on Sue's site take time to look at her work...she is an amazing artist as well as an inspiring writer and teacher. Grab a cup of coffee and prepare to sit for awhile!

Your work is simply amazing. I read, with great interest, your interview on Ancient Artist- Sue Smiths' blog,and was so taken in by your drawings. I'd say it's more apt to name your blog the Extraordinary Person who HOLDS the Pencil.
There is nothing in your work that says beginner.
Great blog and website.
