Several years ago, after suffering a major loss in my life, I found myself falling into that deep depression people talk about. One morning, while contemplating what direction to take in my life, I sat on the side of my bed and literally said “ Good morning Tom, you are the Greatest Living American Artist.” I then made a pot of coffee and began painting again, something I had not done for several years. I did this ritual for many months, It lifted my spirits and fueled my passion. I never want to stop painting…….I never will!
