Finding my North Star

I thank a wonderful teacher, Ron Boehmer from Lynchburg, Va who shared valuable wisdom with me. Tthere are 4 questions an artist needs to answer. When I get lost or confused navigating my painting or in my process, these questions can be my North Star::

WHAT do you create?

HOW do you create?

WHY do you create?

WHO is the artist?

While they lead back to home within my heart, over the years my answers ebb and flow. The questions always help me get my bearing, but the conditions are ever-changing.
