A colored pencil drawing that I did for the featured artist show at East Colony Fine Art gallery. I showed with Joan Tierney and believe me she is a very very good artist. She uses acrylic in a beautiful way. I am sorry this photo is not a very good one but I am happy to be writing this blog. I have been so troubled with my computer lately and Marie came over to help me and i think I've got it. We hope.
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.
