Robert Burridge - photo courtest of artist
In 1985, I turned my passion into my second career. I retired from industrial design and became a full time, contemporary fine art painter, moved to California's Central Coast and prepared to paint the rest of my life. It is said, "Your heart doesn't know how old you are." For me, it's true. Painting everyday in my small studio overlooking the Pacific Ocean, I feel like a kid again playing with color, design, paint and canvas, which reminds me of the saying, "It's never too late to be what you always should have been." Follow your bliss! (http://www.robertburridge.com/bio.html)
