The Story:

When I was young I would have dreams of angels coming and taking me on flights. It was as if they were holding me below them and we would fly all over. I can remember looking down at myself sleeping in bed and thinking...This is really cool. I could never really see the Angels, but I could feel them. I would try to look up but for what ever reason I could not get a clear picture.

As time went on, the dreams stopped. I miss them. So when God asked me to create Him an Angel a day I thought, how am I going to do that? I did not know what an Angel looked like, but I knew how I felt when they came to visit.

As I am a landscape oil painter, I tried painting Angels in oils. I soon found that I could not create one a day. Also I had a vision of how I wanted the Angels to feel, but oil was not cutting it.

So I quit trying for a while then about six months later, God asked again. I said how am I doing to do this? God said, be open. So open I was. I tried air dry clay, wood, pencil, markers and pastel. I could not get the feeling i wanted.

So one day I found myself on You Tube watching a digital artist drawing on a tablet. This started a one year research project for me. I wanted to know everything I could about digital art.

You have to remember I was an "Oil Painter" an artist of Fine Art. A landscape artist. I hung out with oil painters and students of the fine arts. Digital art was NOT real art. After all all you did was find a photo and push a button and Volia, a painting. In some ways they are correct to think that. So for me it was hard to even try digital art. But I did it any way. I downloaded the software and set out to try. My old computer could not handle it. Very slow.

As God was in charge of this project, the opportunity came for me to purchase a new computer, software, and a Wacom Intuos Tablet. The rest is history.

I still paint in oils several times a week, but have added this wonderful medium that is digital. Thank you for visiting and read this long story.
