Who needs it anyway???

Ahhh just kidding...did I raise anybody's blood pressure?

I'm curious for myself and I would like to share some testimonials with
students; I think it would be good for them to relate to.

What motivated you to become an artist/art teacher/art lover...

Why do you love it so much? Why do you love what you do whether it be
painting, drawing, photography etc.

How do you SEE the world differently because of your love for the arts?

Who influenced you? And what motivated them and further motivated you(i.e.
DiVinci, Peter Paul Rubins, Ansel Adams, Duchamp...Charles Schultz, etc.,
etc, etc.) in your life, in your art???

O.K. this is pretty deep and personal, but isn't art? I would really love
to hear (see) some responses if you so desire. Can you tell I'm a
student(curious, wanting knowledge to spill out my ears-of which it will
probably be happening very soon)?

Thanks for your time.
