Follow Your Bliss

A brief look into the art of RWJR Rwjr Close2Art Creations
February 23 2011

RWJR's studio is located in Bartlett, Tn....next to Memphis. RWJR attended: MTSU, University of Memphis and Columbia State with a focus towards Graphic Design and Studio Art.

Artist Statement: One of my favorite quotes is by Joseph Campbell, "Follow your bliss...". That is exactly what painting is for me, Bliss. Art has the power to effect people both in a positive way and in a negative way. The fact that we feel these emotions is what makes it art. I intend to follow my bliss and continue painting, learning and teaching what I know and have seen along the way. My hope is that I inspire others to follow their bliss and along the way people might connect with my artwork.
