Wealthy? No. Extravagant? No. Blessed? Yes, extremely blessed. I’ve toyed with channels and ideas in art that would create wealth and allow some extravagance but not far into them I’ve backtracked in favor of pure art.
This notion, pure art, has cost me. Pure art has defined my paths, for me it has meant resisting anything that takes me away from the humble yet imperative act of simply painting.
Along the way there continues to be the little luxuries I believe one must allow themselves, in fact, must insist on for the good of mental health and inner peace. One such “luxury” is a moment each morning in sanctuary with a very personal Java and baked treat.
A practice I highly recommend.
My location of choice lately has been Brock Street Espresso, so if you’re there don’t be afraid to lean in and say good morning. And if you get some Java there be sure and tell them that Robert McAffee sent you.

The Artists Journey
This is my blog page and it is where I get to be the opinionated man that I really am. The views are my own.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
