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.

Think Global; Act Local #EarthDay2017
You can help the planet right in your own backyard (or patio/window-basket)! Plant flowers that are beneficial to pollinators. You get to enjoy them, as well. ... ;o)
If you've got a camera, but not a green thumb, you can help this planet too by taking images of the beauty you see around you every day and keep showing it to everyone. Every image increases appreciation for the wonderful things on our planet and it is something that you can do all the time ... :o).

Here's a great article about poppies and bees.
