To the editor: I have been blessed to be able to build a career on a God-given talent that gives me great satisfaction every day as an artist, graphic designer and now as the Mayor of Manlius. Since 1982, I have been drawing and presenting portraits to celebrities across New York State commemorating their performances or appearances.
