It's been awhile since I have written in my blog. Have lots to say. Sunday we all went to my Aunt's 100th birthday party. It was a grand affair and my aunt as bright and beautiful as any 50 year old. What a wonderful family. I am so proud of them all. As for art work, I have sold two of my newest acrylic paintings. Both Utah scenes, Capital Reef, Utah and Escalante, Utah. I am thrilled, my first time using acrylics. I have had these paintings photographed so I will include them with this blog. Sorry I could not use the photographs from my photographer. These are from the gallery. I have so much to do and have so much I want to paint. My next painting is a scene from Zion National Park.
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.
