It's never too late to follow your dream.
In high school, I took a ninth grade art class and then again in my senior year for an easy credit. I loved to draw ever since I was a young child. From those two art classes, I learned enough to make some beautiful art. Now, looking back I see talent - mine or anyone's - as a gift from God.
Life happened right out of high school in 1977 - I started working hard, playing hard - and dabbled here and there with colored pencils. Even selling a few. Eventually, I put the pencils down and didn't draw again until many years later.
Let's start with some early art I created.
