A fun night scene.  I love painting night scenes, 
I get excited seeing how the moon glow changes the landscape.   This is the horse barn from the farm where we stayed a few weeks ago.

Linda downloaded a list of questions to ask an artist.  So I thought it would be fun to answer one each day.
Question:  Did you always want to be an artist?
My Answer:  I knew from an early age I could draw and paint better than my friends.  Perspective was never an issue, I could copy comics easily.  I did well in art class in high school.   It was a gift I have always just known I had but being an artist was abstract.  I spent a few semesters in college for elementary ed and dropped out, promptly stumbled around making a bit of an immature mess of my life until I met Linda in 1978 at the age of 25.   I showed her some of my work and proudly proclaimed " I want to be an artist" and her reply was... "You need to get a lot better"!   Together we made a plan and with a lot of resolve, commitment, and practice I never looked back.  I think Linda may have looked back in the early hard years!
