I read somewhere that being an artist is not just being able to put paint down but knowing what paint to put down.   I’ll add to that: “It’s knowing what you should paint….or want to paint…”  I’m still searching…

In the meantime, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the Society of Animal Artists opening of their exhibit “Art and the Animal” at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, September 28-October 1.  It’s a beautiful and inspiring exhibition, and the Awards Banquet certainly left no doubt about the talent in this group of artists. The exhibit will be in Houston into January 2017.
