Well, I am only going to post when I have time. Sorry about the glare on this image. I went to an antique store in Reno and they had all these lanterns hanging from the ceiling. I just loved them so I shot some digital images while I was there. I did 3 paintings from the digital images I shot. I started my online painting class Monday, so I will be very busy. The class is called quick studies. I have toned 6 canvas boards and they are drying. All the oil studies are timed. I will post them as I have time. I will start painting tomorrow. By the end of May, I have to have 90 quick studies done and 2 longer paintings done, so if I am not here as much as usual, you will know why!
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.
