The 4th of July has personal importance to me. In addition to being the day we recognize the independence of the United States, it marks several significant days for ARTCO.
Twenty one years ago, during the Fourth of July holiday, I filed the papers with the city and state to ‘create’ ARTCO. And, one year ago, on the Fourth of July, I retired from thirty years of working in manufacturing, to focus full time on ARTCO.
For me, the Fourth of July truely is “Independence Day.” Independence to follow my dream. Independence to be an artist, to make art, and to help fellow artists.
So, on this, the birthday of America, I want to give each of you a birthday present. I want to give you the gift of independence. Independence to follow your dreams.
Happy Birthday, America!
