I’ve been creating all sorts of art since I was old enough to hold something in my hand, and I've always been happiest with my hands covered in any art media. To me, art isn’t about a product, it’s about a process and what happens to us when we create it and experience whatever form it takes. I believe my purpose is to make things beautiful and positively affect the lives of others. The amazing artists on this Paint Nite team and those of you who come to paint, give me the opportunity to do what I love - create beauty, both on canvas and in cultivating relationships.
Painting together isn’t about criticizing anyone's artistic abilities, or lack thereof. It isn’t about coming out with the best painting of the night or the best painting of your life. It’s not about competition, stress, pressure, worry, or judgement. It’s not about being good, but about being happy, taking a load off and enjoying ourselves! Regardless of your skill level or experience, or how many Paint Nites you've been to, when you leave joyful for having done it and eager to do it again, you’ve given yourself and everyone else a totally unique experience. Come on, let's get covered in paint!
