Primarily self-taught, I painted my first painting shortly after retiring from my 'real job' of thirty-five years as a bureaucrat for the state. I bought a how-to-paint book, a few paints and brushes and began painting. I began painting with oils. Recently I gave acrylics a try and find I enjoy that medium, too. My style is evolving, meaning the results vary from painting to painting. While I don't exhibit or sell any work I'm not proud of, some paintings do come closer to my style objective than others. And, yes, some paintings are trashed!
Collectors from Hawaii to New England and Alaska to Florida have purchased my work. (Hopefully, the internet will expand the market for me to the rest of the world!) Visit my website at J Loren Reedy.com to see all my available paintings, as well as several archived sold pieces. Just for fun, go to You Tube and punch in 'J Loren Reedy' (without the quotation marks, of course). You'll see some fun videos featuring several of my paintings.
