I have to paint today. One of the Utah paintings is not right so I thought today would be a good day to fix it up. I would have wanted it finished by last Sunday but no luck. The Strawberry painting is one of my front porch series, like the Breakfast on the Porch, half eaten banana. I really have to go, my studio is calling me. I did take Missy for a half hour walk and it is gorgeous out.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
