"I can only go so long without creating something. It has been that way as long as I can rememer. We are supposed to be made in God's image. Think about it. The first thing we know about God is the creation/evolution story. We come by it naturally. So go with it. I do and love every minute of it. I feel most alive when creating. That is all art is, becoming more aware of your surroundings, more in tune to nature and the beauty that is everywhere. The hard part is taking what is in our head and heart and getting our hand to cooperate. When I can get my head, heart, and hand all working together, then I have achieved my goal. I have created art."
