First of all, I thank God for his glorious creation all around us that endlessly inspires, and for the sight to experience the colors, and dance of light and dark.
I drew constantly as a child and teen, but did not have the opportunity to follow up on my artistic inclinations. It was not until almost thirty years later that I occasionally took local art classes to give myself an artistic outlet that I began to regularly express my creative side once again.
Not really happy with the quality of art instruction available locally, I began to realize that the internet had so much more to offer in the way of instruction. There are many free Youtube lessons online, and there are so many websites and art blogs in which artists freely offer advice and tutorials. In addition, there are many affordable online lessons from so many talented artist/instructors.
Although I always loved watercolors and tried to start out with that medium, I was not able to control the results the way I wanted; I had a little more success with pastels, but then hit my stride when I decided to try acrylics. Acrylics have the qualities of bold and vibrant colors that I so admired in other artistís work. In addition they are very forgiving and can be worked and reworked, or the whole thing painted over for a completely fresh start.
Thank you for viewing my work, and please feel free to comment on my paintings or to leave me an email!
