If you were to look at Jon Masters' life, you might think it was filled with a lot of bad moments, but he'd be the first to tell you that you're wrong. The 56-year-old painter has gone to jail, lost and regained his dog, lost the boat that was his only source of shelter and is currently homeless. Throughout all these struggles, Masters has held his head high, believing that nothing bad ever really happens, we just haven't had enough time to see the good.
Currently, Masters lives in Pensacola, where he paints beautiful landscapes and sells them to tourists and locals. While he still lives outside, his situation is steadily improving. He now sells his paintings at the Gulf Breeze Farmers Market and has even received a few offers commissioning his work. His positive way of looking at life reminds us how important it is to see the good in every struggle that we face.
