An Artist's Journey
Don Berry self-portrait

Enjoy the ride!

This narrative includes many samples of art and mentions some of the key people I've met on my journey. It's a real-life, nitty-gritty example of how one artist makes his way.

Chapters 1-14 cover 60 years from childhood to the Great Recession of 2009. After that, each year is a new chapter.
