The idea of Creation-------From Johnny Leo

Each of us is surrounded by the beauty of creation. As a young child I was fascinated by the many colors of nature and the depth of human nature. This fascination compelled me to take pen in hand and create pictures from my soul.

Painting is an expression of the soul. When artists take pen in hand they are sharing their inner thoughts with audience. It is friendship at an intimate level. How fortunate we are to be able to share our hearts with one another. Let us remember when an artists shares his work with us they are sharing their hearts. Receive from them and be thankful for how they have made our lives better!
