Wonderful class on Tuesday morning. Everyone happy and everyone doing something different. There are three classes going on at the same time in different rooms. One is a pastel class taught by a very very wonderful teacher and the other class is Acrylics and the teacher is also very dedicated and very funny. My dog loves that room because it is sunny and because everyone has treats for her. She lays in the sun and when she needs a little loving she will choose a student and ask to be picked up and cuddled. Every one loves this, it is as if she is giving the person a gift of love. All the paintings I have shown are oils and have been done in the last 3 or 4 years. Anyone wanting more information about them can email me at studiojeanne AT gmail Dot com. It's 8:45 and time to climb into bed and read. A special time of the evening. The oil painting is Breakfast on the Porch.
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.
