Today I am off to teach my class. On Tuesday's I teach drawing, watercolor, colored pencils and recently, oil pastels. It is a great class and the time just flies by. I teach all ages. In this class the ages range from 40 to 90 years old. I learn so much from my wonderful students, my friends. I have two women who have been coming for 34 years. they have tried everything from oil painting to all the different mediums. I love these ladies, they are close to my heart. Oh and by the way my little dog, a Shih Tzu that I got from the pound comes to class too. She is everyone's favorite. A perfect little dog with a big loving heart.
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.
