Remembering Georgia is a colored pencil and oil pastel painting or if some people prefer a drawing. Mark and Peggy own this painting and they have it in their Oregon home. I always loved Georgia O'Keefe's paintings and she was my idol for years. At this moment I am loving Jamie Wyeth paintings. He is an edgy painter, you really have to see his work in life not from a picture to really see the beauty of his art. His paintings glow. This past summer I went to one of his shows at the Ogunquit Museum of Art on Shore Rd in Ogunquit, Maine. I was blown away by his painting of a huge ram, "Islander". His silhouette is looking over the ocean and some of the island. It is a gorgeous painting, I am at awe of this painting. I read he applied his paint right from the tube to get this wonderful animal's fur. The texture and color of this ram is stunning. Look up the painting "Islander" on Google and let me know what you think.
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.
