It's May 30th and I have not posted for a long while. I can't say why, I think I was a little traumatized with a sudden illness at the end of July. BUT I am back and feeling very good. I am painting again. My feature artist show at the East Colony Fine Art Gallery will be opening on July 8th. My partner is Cheryl V. and she is a great painter so I have to be sharp. I am happy to be back and to visit all my blogger friends. Three Old Friends is a watercolor and colored pencil drawing. It's an old one, and I am showing it because I have been getting a lot of inquiries about teaching more colored pencils. I will continue my looking back on my artwork and next will be Oil Sticks. Looking forward to seeing you again.
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.
