“I’ve always thought it rather funny that my art portfolio has been around the world while I work in my studio. This Painting idea kind of stems from that- I’m use to working from the studio, but I wanted to paint far away places. And how better to do that than with my friends the Travelers. They will share with me their stories and I will share the Journey in paint. This is the start of World Journey between the Artist and The Traveler. Join me in this adventure and become a traveler, and share with me a story from your travels.”
