"... Wilbur, I'm inspired by your artwork and would love to apply your technique of paint and color application but with edible paint and colors (to my food). Will you teach me to how you make some of your paintings? I want to understand and share your philosophy in your art work? ..."

I don't know of any other artist then you who puts as much energy, creativity and money into and behind their art and the marketing of same. From the quality of the materials used, to the depth of your marketing efforts, including your (mailings) digital and print efforts, it is all truly extraordinary. And your finish work, (that is to say your presentational framing) is generally exquisite. Nobody and I mean no one I've ever met or reviewed puts in your level of commitment. Individuals go only so far, and then they typical toss the project to someone else: the gallery, the publisher, the producer. But not you. You're a self-made man that believes in his ability and its manifestations, and it shows. In the end however it's the depth of your work and its diversity that attracts the art aficionado. Now, all of that said, it is no wonder to me that your web mentions come up 10 to 1 to other artists in your genera. You're the oracle of self-promotion! You've forgotten more about photography then most people will ever know. You've got digital plates of every piece (of Art) you've ever done. You've got a brilliant daughter who loves to make you happy. Besides, you're a perfectionist, so it will be a success.

(as a collector of your work some may feel I'm biased. But I'm not. We like them all, quite a bit. And many of our visitors point to your works as their favorites in our collection. Comparatively speaking, to what your work currently sells for, you did gift them to us. Nonetheless we paid many thousands of dollars for our collection of your work. I'd own more if I could afford them. You create richly contemplative and complex art. You really are top drawer.)
