I mostly paint words and have
not painted a nice portrait figural
since 2008 or before

Original. I came up with it. I write my own sayings. After I think a quote up I hand paint it on to a stretched canvas. Each piece is one of a kind. If you see one of my quotes you like Please ask me to paint a custom version for you in your favorite colors.
I have always kept a journal on hand to write down all my sweaty thoughts.
In 2006 that notebook exploded into an art studio and my words went from the note book to the canvas.
A passion was ignited and I have not stopped painting. A few years later after selling thousands of paintings online and in person at street fairs and small galleries, I discovered Etsy and have enjoyed selling here and even doing a few custom pieces along the way including one to a very fashionable celebrity .
It is super fun to see the response folks have to my thoughts as well as my painting style and handwriting. I was once told to be ashamed of my handwriting.
I decided instead to embrace it as an unique talent.
