Sniff, sniff...and to think, I knew you 'when'....hahahaha....wow, Rick, you are going places with your art...couldn't happen to a better person....you deserve all the recognition and praise you get...congratulations!
What a talented family you have Rick, you must be proud! Your comment "But part of me feels like I just found out I can fly!" put a huge grin on my face - what a wonderful feeling for you to have And I would definitely buy your book!
Your family is full of talent! Mine is a mixed bag. lol
Great interview!! You're definitely getting the recognition you deserve and you're an inspiration for me. I quit for 7 years and I'm still being stubborn. I guess I don't have someone to kick me in the ass like I did in school.
Love the first paragraph! Makes it sound like you're 75 years old and ready for a nursing home.
Pretty interesting though, my story is very similar to yours. Only difference is I never really did art when I was younger, I was a musician. Started about two years ago quite randomly and taught myself. Do come from an artistic family though. Anyway, good stuff!
