From a lifetime of painting I feel the experience has change me completely. I believe that if we were made in the image of the creator then we were created to create. Without this outlet our lives become stagnated, but with this energetic force our spirits soar. One’s creative spirit will integrate into our own philosophy, spirituality as well as all our relationships. In time, the art we create is us.

    Mr. Coldly, Tammy Doster Brainer introduced me to your art. Very impressive sir! My husband is an abstract artist but is new in the business of it all so he is doing the tent shows at the moment. I hope to show him your work which is absolutely fantastic. Tammy speaks so highly of you. Take care and may God continue to bless you. Bren
