Early Beginnings

Yesterday I was sorting through my life ... rounding up receipts for my year end taxes ... and came across some photos that brought back many memories; a portfolio of art work that dates back to the early 80's.

A friend of a friend approached myself and two other school buddies to help design a studio set for a cable television company in Regina, Saskatchewan. Excited beyond words, I knew that this was the beginning of something incredible. After a few initial meetings and concepts, my two friends slowly lost interest in the project.

Being true to my word, I worked long hours into the night to fulfill my obligations. I suppose from that point on, I knew that I could make a living as a self employed artist, doing what I loved to do.

I went on to create many more projects in Regina. I painted several murals on outside walls for local businesses. At Christmas time I painted a window design in for Sask. Tel, which included Santa Clause talking to his Reindeer.

Memories are good things to have ... they remind us of where we have been, what we have accomplished ... as we often forget how far we have come.

Till Next Time ...

Love what you Do ... and Do what you Love.
