In Search of Excellence

I have heard it said that our talents are given to us for the benefit of others an it is our responsibility to develop these to the best of our ability and use them for the good of others. I have pursued this ideal since I became a professional artist in 1980. Up until that time most of my efforts were put into various sales jobs that were somewhat lucrative yet unfulfilling. Most of my evenings were spent painting and developing my skills as an artist. I also took art classes at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It wasn't until the late seventies that I noticed wildlife art was becoming very popular and at the time was my favorite subject to paint. I decided to break away from selling life insurance and go into painting full time. I had saved enough money to get by for about six months without any income. Either I was going to make a living as an artist, or it would have to remain a hobby. Now after 26 years as an artist, I can proudly say that people all over the world enjoy my art.

I enjoy painting various subjects from landscapes to city scenes. This keeps my inspiration high and I avoid boredom from doing the same thing over and over again. I am always striving to improve an create better work. The pursuit of creating the perfect painting is an elusive goal for any artist. However, the attempt must be made. If at the end of life's journey this goal has not been met, at least I will know that I have given my very best.
