Artist Statement Submitted 2018I love painting and almost all paintings in almost every medium that are beautiful, engaging and whatever way they can appeal to lots of people. There are so many wonderful painters that I really wonder what I am doing entering this show but I am. I like my painting, I think it is OK and it certainly was fun to do and is a picture of what lots of the Florida retirees spend their time doing on the weekend and weekday evenings in the extended winter season.[About all year for many.] Just because they retire they don't quit making music and having fun. So we all have to get going and keep on painting and hopefully we will have some created some truly wonderful paintings that we are proud to have done.
