Pappy-B: Self Taught Outsider Artist who Paints Abe Lincoln!

WELCOME TO MY ETSY SHOP!
WHY I PAINT LINCOLN
I've always been drawn to the face of Abraham Lincoln. I've studied and read up on the man since I was in first grade and bought a kids biography of him at the book fair, and stayed up all night reading it under my covers with a flashlight. I find his face endlessly fascinating--there's so much going on. I can paint him in my outsider self-taught way, and every time I see and discover something different. My paintings hang in private collections all over the world, and I'm pleased that you are considering adding one to your own collection

MY VISION STATEMENT ON ART
The artist tries to see the world with the eyes of a child, and the heart of an explorer. Isn't art supposed to take us out of ourselves, so that we can see our own TRUE selves? Isn't the purpose of the artist to raise the level of JOY in the world? Take a moment now and breathe. Deep breath! Now--smile! Just simply, SMILE! Count your blessings, and enjoy every minute of your life. Tick-tock goes the clock! ENJOY! As an artist--I'm an outsider. But that also means I'm on the INSIDE--artists listen to the world and to nature and to their hearts, then we try and bring it to you so you can smile.

"Oh, earth, you're too wonderful for anybody to realize you. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it--every, every minute?"
-- Thornton Wilder

    WHO IS PAPPY B? I'M A SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST. My girls call me Pappy so it stuck and that's how my art was born as Pappy B. But the name fits: When I create art I take on a new me. I'm a primitive, raw outsider painter, and a genuine NEED to paint!
