Saturday 9/11/2010 A sad day. The sad memories come back so easily. I hope we never will have another such disaster. John's sons are here until the 14th and my son Paul will be here on the 22nd, can't wait. My second drawing is just leaves. I wish I had photos of all the drawings I have done. Can't get them back now it is too late. My advice to new artist is to photograph every thing you do.
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.
