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.

Bath Time!

Bath Time!

A little lighthearted, endearing moment to remind us to love and care about our wonderful wildlife on this planet. I just adore elephants. I hope you do, too.

Thinking on my excursions with Jenny Loren and Sassi Sassmannshausen ... :o)

STATUS: Vulnerable
”The International Union for Conservation of Nature released a report in September of 2016 that estimates Africa's elephant population at 415,000––this is a decline of 111,000 elephants. This is reported as the worst decline in the past 25 years.” https://goo.gl/TXwerd
