I think I should acknowledge when I have the best life in the whole world.
I am so fortunate to be an artist. I spend all day being with my wildest thoughts and putting them down on canvas and people really respond to them, and I sell a lot, and the more I do the more I can do. So I would pretty much say I am as close to heaven as anybody can get. It was worth the years and years of painting till I got it right. It was worth every last drop of sweat and struggle. It is more than worth it because lets face it, everybody has to sweat and struggle anyway. Not everybody gets a massive pay-off though.
This is my new goal, sell everything I paint and give gobs of money to other people who are not as extremely fortunate as me. That is how the world works: if It gives you a lot you better give back twice as much. I am going to write a book and illustrate it. It will be a creativity book for children and adults who want to think like a child again. and be free to be who they uniquely are.
