I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!
I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.
Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.
Let me begin with this:
I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Earth Day 2016 - My planet. My part.
I love my home.
So often we feel that the idea of trying to change the circumstances of our world is too overwhelming. What can one person do, really?! Take some time to find the beauty in your own neighborhood. It’s a fact that the more we appreciate something, the more we want to take care of it. No one who destroys their environment is really lazy or disinterested in caring for it; they only need to learn to love it more. If you want to help the Earth, start locally. Help others to cultivate their gratitude for what they have to amplify their desire to keep it from harm.
We are a group of members of Google+ Create, a Google program for recognizing creative users of Google+. This year we are celebrating Earth Day with this small, symbolic art project with the theme: Earth Day 2016 - My planet. My part. #CreateCommunityEarthDay
