About St. Louis Skin Solutions

If you do too much it's going to lose its effectiveness. I started painting as a hobby when I was little. I didn't know I had any talent. I believe talent is just a pursued interest. Anybody can do what I do. I was blessed with a very steady hand; and it comes in very handy when you're doing these little delicate things. The little tiny Tim easels will let you down. We'll take a little bit of Van Dyke Brown. We'll throw some old gray clouds in here just sneaking around and having fun.

Talk to trees, look at the birds. Whatever it takes. They say everything looks better with odd numbers of things. But sometimes I put even numbers—just to upset the critics. We artists are a different breed of people. We're a happy bunch. If you didn't have baby clouds, you wouldn't have big clouds. Let your imagination be your guide.
