Fairfax, Virginia- It is a story that we hear too often, someone loses interest in their passion because of work, children, stress, money, etc. One man is taking the phrase "I should have," to a new level. Jeff Torsky of Fairfax, Virginia has turned his passion of painting into a reality, all thanks to an autonomous car.
Mr. Torsky normally would commute one hour each way to his consulting job in Arlington, Virginia. When he purchased his first autonomous car three years ago, he found himself with lots of free time on his hands, and he decided that he wanted to pursue his passion of paint.
Mr. Torsky wanted to become a painter ever since he was five years-old, and saw his first Van Gogh. He painted all during high school and even into college. Then something terrible happened, Mr. Torsky needed make money once he graduated college, and his artwork was not selling. He decided to take a job with a local consulting firm in Arlington. Next thing Mr. Torsky knows he has three kids, two divorces, and he hates his life.
There was only one thing that could save him, and it was art. Mr. Torsky has started painting in his autonomous car while he was commuting to work. "I finally feel like I know my true self, and why God put me here on earth." Mr. Torsky hasn't sold a painting yet, but he's confident his Impressionism-Modern-Faux-Art will sell.
