The past few years have been…less than ideal. I’m proud to say that I’ve been taking these lemons and diligently turning them into lemonade. The only problem with this proverbial phrase is when the world drinks up the lemonade and says, “Yum… hey, he’s good! Let’s give this guy more lemons!” In truth, it hasn’t been all lemons. Some very amazing friends and family have kept me going with their support and encouragement.
Landscaping and handy-manning had constituted for the vast majority of my income, but last year I started doing seasonal chalk art for many of the VaporLife stores. I started in the fall of 2016, and the biggest challenge for this life-long Floridian has been getting a grasp of the “traditional seasons”. Down here in South Florida our seasons consist of: summer, hurricane, tourist, and rainy (not necessarily in that order). Although sculpting has been my “thing”, 2D art is becoming an increasingly regular part of my repertoire.
