Why do I paint?

Why do I paint…..? I have asked myself that question thousands of times over the years, and to be honest I don’t know if I will ever have a profound answer But deep down I just love it when a painting starts to look real, it’s just dabs of paint on a blank canvas, nothing more, but something gets created in the process and that makes me feel good inside and that is reason enough for me to keep painting and to keep trying to improve if I can teach people to feel this way then that is a real bonus 🙂
