I really enjoy painting abstracts. I don't know that much about them, except to me it becomes an interesting experience. I sat down the other day and just started to paint with my acrylics. I really didn't have anything in mind to paint, but just wanted to put feelings down. I had listened to the song "Wasted Years" and for me it was meaningful. I won't go into it, but I knew someone that drank a lot and really wasted their talent over the years. As I painted on, I began to put all my thoughts down in paint and was amazed at the way I felt about it. When I showed my friends the art,I found that not many good comments came my way, but to me I loved it. It did express the years that one can waste. The mood was there. It is one thing to paint a beautiful painting, but when one isn't uplifting, it is another thing. What do you think? The song "Wasted Years" is a song of a life, living in fear and without love, a life without meaning --but it also tells one to turn around ,God is calling them from those wasted years. So, it is inspiring. I hope you google that song and listen to it. As an artist, I love to try all new things, so abstracts -That's why I paint them. Millie Gift Smith

I have started trying abstract after many years of impressionist painting. Due to an eye injury it is hard to paint. And when one has painted as long as I have, they have to paint. It is good to try other things. I was so glad to run into you on the computer while researching the abstract. Love your paintings and your enthusiasm. You have inspired me.

Oh! Such a nice panting! I like abstract art especially the way you have done it. Please continue to put up more videos to demonstrate oil painting techniques, especially for beginners, and spread your love for art...

Wow is just the simple word that may explain that how much I liked it. It was nicely stuffed with the material

Saw your watercolor painting demo on youtube. A song was playing by, I assume, our daughter.? It's new to me and I love it. Has it been recorded so it is available to the public?

Your name is so unusual, I can't imagine there is another. Look forward to hearing fromyou.
