    Birds have one natural ability we will never have, they can fly without any man-made help. They fascinate me because, like fish, they live in a different world from us because of their natural gifts. Spend some time watching them as they glide around the skies above.

    Each dog that I paint has a unique character of their own and that's what makes them fun. They love to play at the beach, enjoy life, and be happy. It's something we could learn from for our own personal health.

    There are moments when a simple smile from another person spruces up our day. I know when I go on my walks all my furry dog friends put a smile on my face, along with their families.

    I've been writing poems and painting watercolors for many years. I find painting and writing enlighten, enrich and inspire each other. Poems are the place where creativity is at a peak because the boundaries are endless. For me, humorous poems are the most fun to write.
