Canvas by Kimwww.ArtPal.com/CanvasbyKim
I was artistic growing up, sketching being my primary, but not only skill. My HS art teacher would enter my artwork in local art shows, recieving 1st and 2nd place ribbons. After HS, I became a very busy single mother, leaving art in my past. A husband and 6 daughters later, I woke up one day with a strong desire to paint. Although painting had never been a strong skill in my past, I somehow knew this dream was to become reality. I bought some basic paint supplies, and just got to work, with no formal training. I watched some YouTube videos, but found that I preferred to just spread the paint around on the canvas. I usually start a new piece with a general idea of what I want to create, but the end result is almost always a "surprise" to me. Painting is therapeutic for me, and I often find myself immersed for hours in my work. What I enjoy the most, is making personalized paintings. When someone asks me to paint them a picture of something, I make it come alive with their personality embedded into it. So if you ever request me to create a painting for you, dont be surprised if I ask you questions that seem to have nothing to do with the art itself! I've been painting for about 4 years now or so, and I'm ready to make this more than just a hobby and share my creations with the world!
