"While "Painters" may not be zealots, members of a fanatical group, the real ones have zeal. Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary defines "zeal" as "eagerness and ardent interest in pursuit of something". Think about history and how many were maligned, criticized, laughed at, and put down. Today, everyone is an artist and more than that everyone’s a critic. "Feelings", "Me-ism", and "Self" and a world of non truth takes self expression to the height of hypocrisy. People who put paint on canvas are artists.

One of the things you’ll find is that real artists have a fever for their work and an unquenchable thirst to do more and do it better. They love their work, life and people. In a throw away, bi-stander world where everyone is a critic, they are the ones who know the real game is in the trying.

And for people who love paintings, they get to acquire works that speak to their souls, that encourage their lives daily, and that become priceless treasures for a lifetime."

"Thanks to the many who came before and gave so much.
Those who put up with all the garbage and poisoning stuff.
Those who worked when others went out to play;
Those who felt a quest to create beauty in a special way.
Those artists who created with paint and canvas every day,
Paintings beautiful with volumes of messages to say!"

"Hope you so enjoy your week. Time is precious and real relationships are few!"

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
