Just finished these tulips and am quite happy. I love working with red, I guess I just love the color red. I scanned this image into my computer and no glare and really came out very nice, so I am going to try to scan in the Squash. The weather is beautiful today and the studio is filled with sunshine. I love it.
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.
