RP: What has been the toughest aspect for you as far as creating your art is concerned?
PM: I think that the toughest part about creating artwork is making time to do so. I am married and work a full time job and sometimes the last thing that I want to do when I get home is go back to work. Sometimes, I have to set a schedule and follow it strictly to make sure that I make it to the studio. Once I become involved in a project I can never figure why it was so hard to start. I become immersed in the artwork and work eagerly towards the finished piece.
