I live in a small village outside of Oxford in England . I bought my first canvas at the age of 15 when I figured that anything Cezanne could do, I could do better. And I'm still trying. Why don't I give up? I don't Know. I just keep
seeing things and thinking "that would make a good picture" And away I go.
One thing I've learnt over the years ,is that you don't get better as you get older.(shame)
