My greatest goal as an artist is to paint works of art that will make people happy.  We hang up family photos, vacation spots, posters of our favorite performers, because when we look at them they give us joy and comfort.  If I can create that same feeling from my painting, then my heart is content and the viewers' hearts are full of warmth and love; the love of their city, pet, best friend, favorite superhero or musician, etc.!  My joy is to share that joy with others through the gift of art!
