New Beginnings, New Thoughts

I am going to take the leap. Too long I have wondered what it would have been like if I mad Art my mainstay and not a side job. This is the time. I cannot see myself continuing in the pattern of working for someone elses dream to come true, and mine just being paid a courtesy call. I paint, draw, create, and all the images have a hidden messages and meanings. It is as if I have seen a message, pulled it from the thoughts of the world, and manifested it into this one.

Walk with me on my journey.

How wonderful that you brave enough to make you dream you career. I make jewelry and I would love to make it a full time job, but alas, I don't really make that much money doing it yet! But bravo to you!

Uncle Allan,

You should also introduce your Beach Scenes and local flowers in your paintings of Trinidad and Tobago; also the birds and wild animals.

I am 63 years old and was brought up to turn the Radio off and study in your room in quiet, my children when growing up was talking to their friends on the phone; looking at T/V and operating the Computer while doing home work. They have done well, and also have the skills of the the Video Games, their brains are quick and can multi-task with ease while I who was trained to Uni-Task have a great difficulty multitasking. I have improved over time but is too old to enter the workforce with these skills.

I was also brought up to work for someone else, my Parents did it; my Grand Parents did it; and I did it; that is the reason we are not awealthy family today.

You are on the right track seeking out your own destiny; working for someone makes them rich; working for yourself gives you self worth and a drive that you will be excited about, you will not tire as it is not work, you enjoy doing it and the rewards are greater than working for someone else.

Keep up your drive to succeed and encourage your young Family to work for themselves when they qualify after their Education and Careers.

Please send me some Tropical Scenes on your Web sight for me to look at.

God Bless,
Uncle Allan.
