I'm so happy that spring is finally here! I love starting the day inspired with a nice cup of coffee. As you can see, the inspiration of the day is the "farmboy". So it's a great time to do some outdoor plein air painting in the tradition of artists who love being out in the country as much as I do. I love looking at the blossoming colors of spring and using my imagination to paint from my life experience. So I've been going through my art studio looking for uncompleted works to complete, such as this self portrait inspired from my early life in Paris. By the way, if you'd like to join me in starting your day feeling inspired by art with today's cup of inspiration, here is the link for the "farmboy".

"My Early Years In Paris"
I keep being asked why I always create French works of art when I am an American. The answer is simple. Paris is an important part of my personal life experience that shaped me and my work as an artist. As you can see above, clearly my early years running through the streets of Paris with artists and performers forever enriched my life. Without this valuable life experience I would not be the artist I am today. My early years as an American in Paris artist never ceases to be an endless source of inspiration in my works of art. Paris forever lives and breathes inside of me and my creative spirit. For me, Paris is now a way of life and a great source of joy in my life. Paris made me the artist I am today. That's why my life and time in Paris is an endless source of inspiration in my work as an American in Paris artist.
Wow! You have to give it to the Japanese. As far as I'm concerned, Japanese chefs are phenomenal artists in my heart and mind. Their culinary creations are works of art. Their artistry puts me to shame... Not only is Japanese cuisine beautiful, these edible compositions are also DELICIOUS and definitely among my favorite! Like most people, I struggle with my weight going up and down... But today I treated a friend for lunch and we went whole hog on my diet cheat day. As you can see, not only did I enjoy feasting my eyes, I literally felt all my senses filled with inspiration from devouring these edible works of art created by these truly talented Japanese artists. Now I know why it's called "culinary arts"... :)

My heart goes out to London and all the families of those affected by the recent attack on this great city. In solidarity with London, here's a picture from my younger years when I was so impressed by the spirit of the British people and the great city of London. We shall overcome a world of violence and hate.
