Trying (almost) Anything.
Sure I have limits, but I think I need to expand them. Trying to do WHAT, you ask? Trying to get my Life back. To be a painter again. A successful painter. Ok, I’ll define, or redefine that; For me, it is to be selling, selling a LOT, in a top gallery. Let’s make that a couple of galleries.

My Father and I used to wander for hours among the old cars at the Pamona Swap Meet. Good times.
I remember taking this photo with my Father.
So, what do you all think?
I really will try and try harder to reach my goals.
