Finished this little Sunflower and had it framed today. A small gold frame and looking pretty good. Have three 8" x 10" paintings almost done. Will be a feature artist with my good friend CV. We are excited and working hard to have all new paintings for the show which is set for the beginning of June 2010. My how time flies. It feels as if we just had a featured artist show but that was 15 months ago. Anyway time just moves along at a steady pace.
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.
