What Inspires Me?

inspireI began to see the world differently when I began painting.  I started noticing details about the world around me.  I see sweeping weeping willow trees blowing gracefully in the wind.  During  a storm I like to watch the lightning dancing across the sky.  I am delighted when I see an interesting tree trunk that’s twisting and curving, the beautiful colors of the leaves in autumn, and long sandy beaches.

I’m inspired by the beauty of the places I’ve visited, like Bermuda, Aruba, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and the states I’ve lived and visited here in our wonderful country.

Because of my inability to speak, I use sign language and a communication device.  At times, it is difficult expressing myself even with these things, but with my art I can speak volumes.
