This is a quick study that I like and would like to take to a stronger finish. I have found out that when I get to a spot in a painting that is difficult, instead of staying with it, I use an avoidance behavior. I start another painting or change media, so I am now trying to stay with my pieces longer. It is hard for me and I guess that is the point. Some hard things are worth doing.
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.
