Hi, I'm Gretchen Talmage Allen. My husband, Bill and I are surrounded by woods near the shores of Lake Allatoona in Acworth, GA. We share our little homestead with our two faithful dogs, beautiful kitty & 5 good laying hens. We've been blessed with two, sweet, grown daughters, Abbey & Jona, that fortunately, live close by, for now.
I'm grateful to God for His Love and plan of salvation through Jesus Christ His son. His creation is awesome & Im sure that's the reason why I became an artist. His children, plants, animals, textures, colors, seasons, etc. are so special, I can't wait to see Heaven, but must. I've always wanted to illustrate his book of Revelation ever since I read it. I've started a few sketches & hope to have some for a gallery soon.
I'm trying to learn how to garden year round and glad I started years ago, for it's a slow process.
I'm a nature lover so I prefer to paint and sketch outdoors. I'll sometimes complete larger paintings form my plain-air paintings and sketches. I enjoy working in most mediums; oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, pen & inks, etc., and like drawing and painting most subject matter.
I'm currently teaching painting out of my studio at home & have found that teaching motivates me more than anything. I've learned so much from my students and hopefully vice versa?
I'm a member of The Booth Musuems' Artist Guild,( B.A.G) in Cartersville, GA, exhibit in their gallery and participate in their juried art shows year round, at 'The Downtown Gallery'. I usually have something hanging there.
I appreciate you taking the time to look at my gallery of paintings & photos.
