After the Rain

"I have described being an artist as the 'Best job in the world'. The work starts with a distinct creative idea which includes the media chosen. Then, as the work progresses, it typically swerves to varying degrees until completion. A buyer will then share in the artist's vision. The artist receives admiration and compensation while the buyer owns a unique object which will give pleasure for years."
