Sometimes it is very rewarding to paint an ordinary subject in a fresh way. I need to remind myself that it is what the artist brings to the subject that makes it wonderful. This is not a new painting but it is one that has passed the test of time. It is one of those paintings that I still like after living with it for a long time. It hangs in my studio above my slop sink where I clean my brushes. It is a 16" X 20" oil painting. I will make a challenge. Paint something ordinary or ugly in a wonderful way.
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.
