"I am an artist who didn't know he was an artist until later in life. I didn't know to hope for it. Now I can't imagine life without it."
That simple sentence and this beautiful painting, meant so much to me when I came across them a while back. Mr.Wonderful and I took a road trip to camp in the Nashville area in the summer. We made a few trips to the tiny town of LEAPERS FORK and visited David Arms studio there. That was my first encounter with his beautiful artistry. As you know, I'm an amateur bird watcher- photographer and his paintings coupled with the Bible verses I was raised with were absolutely overwhelming to me. I stood with my mouth open and tears running down my face. WHAT BEAUTY !!
When we returned home and looked him up to "LIKE" his Facebook page, I saw this sentence (above) in his profile.
I hope it speaks to you as it has to me, that it's never too late to BE.
