“Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick. After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick. Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick.”

The Artistic Me
I have enjoyed a lifetime of Artistic Endeavour! BECAUSE! I don’t approach creativity in terms of good or bad but in terms of what I want to accomplish. So when I want to learn a new art form I just do and focus on achieving the goals I set. I believe you should use everything and not limit yourself; I see the hard times as the growing times and the fertilizer for new creativity! Just this year, 2019, I started “My Music Marathon,” a 52-week challenge to write a song a week as well as other musical goals I am working toward!
My pursuits also fall into the realm of building and playing Cigar Box Guitars. These homespun and fun to build guitars are a throwback to the Cival War. Trace evidence of cigar box instruments exists from 1840 to the 1860s. The earliest known illustration of a cigar box instrument is an etching copyrighted in 1876 of two American Civil War soldiers at a campsite, one of whom is playing a cigar box fiddle. They honestly go further back into Black, Irish, European and other cultural music traditions.
So though I’ve been a visual artist it’s mostly music, phillosophy, and fun for now…
