I have been painting since the 5th grade. The school started a 'free time' before lunch to pursue our own interests. So my mother bought a set of oil paints for me because I liked art. (I'd been drawing and coloring since I was small). And I haven't put down the brush since.
I have never had any formal training. I am a self taught artist. My favorite mediums are acrylics and watercolor.
I hear a lot of people say they can't paint. They think their paintings come out looking horrible. Mountains that look like lumps, etc.
I say, don't give up! That's just part of the process. It only means you have to work on it longer! Believe me, I've put in many, many hours of practice. But the pay off is wonderful!
I hope you enjoy looking at my artwork and maybe add to your collection! Thanks to all of you who support the arts!!!
