For the Love of Golf

To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage.
Georgia O'Keeffe

One of the greatest challenges and joys of being an artist is taking what you have at hand and using it in one of your creations.  "For the Love of Golf" was so much fun to create!

Pictures - A Universal Language

   From the book: 

Pictures, a Universal Language 
"Pictures are not only a strong but a universal language. The human race is divided into almost as many languages as there are nations, but the pictures may speak of people of all tongues. We say that children are fond of pictures, but notice any man when he takes up a book, and you will see that the first thing that he looks at is the picture. Have only those in your house that appeal to the better nature. "
