I have done a lot more work on this painting of my three grandsons. I was hoping, oh never mind. The earlier version can be seen on my Tuesday April 11th post (I think). I hate doing detail...it is like having teeth pulled. I LOVE starting paintings! I can be wild and sculptural with the brush but when it comes to all those delicate temperature changes, form shadows and minute detail ULK!! I WILL NEVER BE A PORTRAIT PAINTER!!!!!!!! I am hoping that I will be able to use all the things I am learning to make the new improved me, better. I really do not want to lose who I am artistically in the process!
"Until a person can say deeply and honestly, "I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday," that person can not say, "I choose otherwise". This is a quote from Stephen R. Covey
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
