“I have always known that I possess artistic talent.
I have known it since the first time I picked up a pencil or a crayon. it is something that lives at the very core of my essence. it is the way I think, the way that I formulate my thoughts. it is something that is intimately intrinsic to me, more intimate than my name.
“Creating a work of art for me is not hard. it is easy! It is easy not because of my training- I have no training- but it is easy because it is a part of my essential being. It conforms as closely as possible to my thought patterns and to the way I view reality. The point I am trying to make is that you can only give to a work of art what you have within you.
“I can only take partial credit for the painting displayed here. As I was working on it, the painting seemed to have a mind of its own, and it seemed to be painting itself through my hand. It was a strange experience.”
