I was very creative as a teenager, I signed up for every art class I could find, and loved to take pictures, draw w/pen and ink and try a few paintings. I was never satisfied w/my acrylic paintings, they dried too fast, and I couldn't get good blending for shadows. Several years later, I went to college for Business, and took a watercolor class. I did two nice paintings. One of a squash and one of a cow skull. The teacher was impressed, and told me I should go to school for art instead of business. A nice complement indeed. - Years passed, my husband and I built two homes, and are still in the process of finishing up this one. We are do it your self kind of people. On a recent vacation in Cedar Key, I was looking in some art shops. The fire grew inside. I looked at the art and looked the prices. Some art was fabulous, some not, most prices were high.
My husband encouraged me to pick up the paint brush again. I did, and - they came out good! Since I was an avid FB user, I started adding artists to my friends list. I asked them about paint to use, paper to use, and how they marketed their art. After posting my second piece, I was asked to paint a dog portrait for a friend, then another. I've been painting for about one month - and have sold two paintings, and have a few other people looking for good pictures of their dogs for a portrait.
My goal, is to share - learn and sell some. I like detailed work that is realistic, but not so realistic
that it looks like a photo. I intend to share my work at a reasonable price. Enough to keep me in supplies and keep the passion growing. Most of my work is on Redbubble, but I will be looking for a different web page, so I can set my prices and sell directly to you. Contact me directly for different
prices, requests, and or suggestions.
Please join me in my journey. I look forward to sharing my work with you.
