One picture says it all



After I graduated CCS many moons ago, I had these grandiose visions of somehow changing the world with my art. Could I be the next Picasso, be a part of the new Nouveau, be instrumental as Bauhaus, or maybe be written up in critical art books? I guess I still have some of those dreams but I've since realized that it's through hard work, dedication to my craft and it starts with one person. If I can somehow change one person's perception of the world for the better- I've achieved that change. Knowing Ingrid is happy and thankful is a wonderful place to start.

(Many thanks to Carol Mazurek for the great pics)

Ever since I took on this project, there has been more requests to donate art for Ingrid to enjoy. Above is one I just got today from Chelsea Kirchoff. It seems as though I've been appointed art conduit for Ingrid alluva sudden!

Thank you for taking the time to brighten this little girl's life with your awesome, God given talent. Thank you - Thank you!

Aw Dave you didn't have to do that. Like I said, this is so self less and it's such a wonderful thing to be part of. I know she truly appreciates these works of art and I bet her wall looks beautiful. I can only hope that all of this work inspires her and keeps her strong.
