Here it is the first small oil painting, Red Tomato, 5" x 5". $75. I am just so excited about doing a small painting. At the beginning of my doing small paintings I was totally not able to paint small. I love big and I painted big but now I am so enjoying these small pieces. I also have to thank one and all who have emailed me or made comments. It is the most wonderful feeling knowing you have artist friends out there rooting for you and the biggest thing is being able to go visit all of you on your magnificent blogs.
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.
