I met my friend Jerry at one of his shows. We hit it off even before he knew I liked to paint. I was just starting to find my style as an artist and only my two roommates at the time new I was painting. I love meeting other artists because they know. They know the struggle is real. When you get frustrated with art its like being frustrated with your own kid or with yourself. “Why doesn’t this look right!? What’s wrong with you!” Art comes in so many forms. For me everyone is an artist in some way. It is when a person identifies as an artist do you really connect. Do you identify as an artist?
