I have always been interested in drawing/painting & did some in high school.
A few years ago, my daughter sent me an easel for a Christmas gift with a note saying that it was time for me to enjoy myself.... I am! I still work full-time, but am looking forward to enjoying art more & more. I paint mostly for friends, family & the sheer joy of it.
I started out with acrylics & colored pencil, but changed to oils in 2011. I LOVE the oils! I am still learning to work with them & hope we can all share wonderful experiences together. Painting seems to be one of those activities in which one never stops learning.
