My 12 year old son is "just like Mike"...from the ankles down! These are his Air Jordans, lying on the front steps. Don't trip over them on your way in.
I am still waiting for some kind of personal painting style to emerge. Some days my paintings turn out more graphic and bold, like today; other days the result looks more impressionist, like yesterday. I really admire artists who have their own distinctive style. On the daily painters website, there are a few artists whose work I can pick out on any given day without even checking the name. One artist said he aims to be more of a painter than a copyist...that's a good goal, not sure how to get there. I guess just keep at it.
