My Inspiration

I thought I'd share with you how I began my daily paintings.Last year one of my favourite artists Jack Vettriano was doing a book signing at his gallery in London and I asked him how many hours he paints a day.....the answer was ten to twelve hours!!!! That answer was the kick I needed to finally commit to painting on a daily basis,although I still don't paint that many hours what with work and everything.
Jack Vettriano is a Scottish artist who is self taught and has a style that I love.
