6. Trent’s Artist Statement. Trent continues to paint with passion, take a look: “In my studio, on tables in my backyard, or on the beach on a sunny day, give me the opportunity and I will spring into the most genuine pleasure I know: painting, for more info visit this website.  Standing in front of a clean canvas, I consider with anticipation and choose from many different color options. Once I feel compelled, I take a deep breath and begin. I feel my way with a brush or other tools swiping the canvas. When I capture a pure emotion, I revel with a burst of excitement, my voice rumbles, or I may hum or sing. While scraping the jagged surface, I get more enthusiastic from moment to moment until my canvas has been completely finished to my expectations.” (April is Autism Awareness Month)

There are so many people who are part of introducing and connecting Trent as an artist and people who assist Trent in many ways. We want to thank each and everyone of them – especially you, taking time to read Trent’s Newsletter.  We hope you will continue to follow Trent and his art successes.
