Oils by Keithwww.ArtPal.com/Chewy95
Born in New Jersey in 1976 I have no formal training in oil painting or painting in general. I’ve always loved to draw and copy pictures from my favorite childhood books such as “The Little Old Man Who Cooked and Cleaned”. Once I discovered painting on TV, at about age ten, I became immediately hooked! Bill Alexander and Bob Ross were amazing! I passed many a day watching these two with wonder and amazement at what they created. I really wanted to try it myself, but not coming from a family of art enthusiasts made pursuing painting or any art dreams difficult. However, I never gave up and continued randomly drawing and doing various other activities such as art classes in public school. Eventually, much later in life, I decided on a whim to watch some old Bob Ross videos and paint my wife a picture. I wasn’t crazy about how it turned out, but my wife loved it! She heaped so much praise on me, and offered so much support that I did another, then another, and another.....and here we are! So thank you my loving wife for helping me realize a life long (almost lost) dream!
