Worked at the gallery today and I always love that. Today was an especially good day as two artists, Randy and Mary, came in to do some work. The time went by very fast and we never run out of things to talk about. Amy who owns a framing business is there too and we usually eat lunch together. She is very talented in her job and her life. The picture is from the gallery and was taken a long time ago. The bananas are in Texas and the Pear is in Bedford and the Red Pepper is in the permanent collection at Southern NH University. I am very proud of that.
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.
