How I Relate to This Artist

I am inspired by this artist because he has showed me that I can do anything in art as long as I put my mind to it. One way I can relate to this artist is that I love to paint with acrylic. Another would be how devoted I am to my artwork, and lastly, I like to do portraits like he does.


First I will go through all of the high school art classes that are offered, Then I will graduate and go to college and get some type art degree, then all the artwork that I have done and the artwork that I like I will try to put in galleries and get people to know my art and maybe buy it.
