Most artists are familiar with solitude.  We spend hour after hour at our easels alone.  I think that is why when we get to share our work we celebrate the opportunity.  An appreciative audience is a great gift to any artist.  I cannot thank my friends, family, and all those who support my artistic efforts enough.  You all keep me going through times of self-doubt and I will never forget the kindness and generosity so many have shown me!  My paintings are filled with love and gratitude for all of you and I wish for them to bring you happiness!
