About Christie

Painting is something I always wanted to try but the fear of failure held me back.  About two years ago I just decided to go for it.  My first attempts were truly awful but I got lost in it just the same.  Entire days would go by like hours when I was painting.  I dedicated at least two hours a day almost every day for over a year.  I still have a long way to go but I am quite pleased with the progress I've made so far. 

Along the way I also discovered soft pastels.  Oh my, I love them!  There is just something about getting in there with your fingers and getting all dusty that really appeals to me.
