What’s blocking your vision?
I have a vision of my self as a creative person. I’d like to consider myself an artist. I’m not concerned whether other people think I’m an artist, I want to think of myself that way.
I’m not sure what is blocking me. Is my hair in my face? Do I lack motivation? Do I need a teacher? Do I think I’m too old?
I’m committed to reaching this goal because it’s the only goal I’ve ever had in my entire life that is just for me. I’ll keep you updated on my journey.

I have been painting for three years now. I have had about 180+ lessons and people have told me I am talented. My paintings hang in homes from Florida to Connecticut. I need a vision and I think as I start my second year of retirement it just might happen. I have lost my bitterness by talking about it in my YouTube channel and that helped me greatly. You are a great researcher, you have imagination, you are a great writer, and you are a nice person to strangers like me. My advice is find a good teacher and take some lessons.

Carl, I admire your spirit. Many people just stop taking risks when they retire but you, you have ventured into so many new places! You inspire me. When you paint or make a you tube channel or begin anything new, you are exposing yourself, many people don’t want to risk criticism. But you are willing to get the benefit from those risks!
Congratulations and here’s to a wonderful, exciting, adventure-filled 2015.
