Hi, and welcome to my world of art. I am looking forward to having some fun with painting. After many years of working I am now retired and I have the time to devote to art. My love for Art goes back to when I was young and I have been drawing and painting for a long time. I have some formal training, I took art classes when I was in grade school and high school. I composed scenes for our school plays and bulletin boards. I also attended Faulkner State College studying commercial art. I have had some lessons and attended workshops. I continue to attend art classes and workshops to build on my knowledge in order to achieve a higher level of painting skills. I am fortunate to live in Fairhope AL, a city that promotes art. I have access to local artists and galleries. We have all phases of the art world here. I have tried many styles of painting, as well as many different techniques. I have studied how others paint, but now, I am developing my own style and putting to use all the great knowledge I have gained from them.
I recently had one of my Works voted into the Juried Art Show at the Fairhope Alabama Art Center, Spring Art Exhibit. I also recently sold one of my Works from the members sales Gallery at the Fairhope Art Center.
I like to paint almost anything, and I like the bold and brighter colors of nature. I hope to achieve the same quality of the fine art I have viewed here so far on Fine Art America and by other great Artist I have viewed. These beautiful art works inspire me to work harder to achieve the status of a Fine Artist. Please look around, comments are welcome.
Thank you for visiting.
