Just finished this pepper. I am happy. I wish I could do one a day as I would like to be part of the painting a day group. I guess all I can do is keep trying. Last night I went to Karate with my grandsons and daughters. I took a 45 minute class. It was a blast and lots of laughing. My 12 year old grandson was absolutely ecstatic. "This is my Memere." I will never forget the wonderful love I felt in that class.
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.
