Although I am constantly searching for inspiration, sometimes painting ideas pop into my mind unexpectedly. I watched an episode of Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show where an animal expert brought a baby black bear onto the set. The cub was so adorable that I just couldn’t resist painting him! As I sketched the cub, I could picture a little of myself in the bear so I was moved to put a little of my own story into the painting.
When I was a child living in South Carolina, I loved watching the jets from the nearby air base fly low over our house. I desperately wanted to fly one of those planes and planned to learn how as soon as I was old enough. Life is crazy sometimes and takes you in unanticipated directions. Instead of learning to fly, I became an artist, and I have been able to spread my wings in a different way than I would have predicted.
The wonder, delight, and maybe even a little envy that the cub is experiencing is something we can all relate to. I entreat you to blaze the path to live the life you want and make your wishes become a reality.
