PAINTINGS BY GLENDA BELLwww.ArtPal.com/bellglenruss
I am a self-taught artist; with a love of art since grade school. I attempted my first painting in 1967 at 23 yrs of age. I have a copy of it in my albums where I place copies of all my artwork. My paintings have sold worldwide. Animals are my favorite subject; however, I love to paint anything, including portraits, still life, abstract, landscape, folk art, etc. I do not claim to be a 'realism' artist. I just paint in 'my own style'. If I want 'realism', I can take a picture. I have no deep inner feelings of why I paint. It's simple. I just love to paint. Since I began selling online, I have sold to date (2019) over 450 paintings. I retired from painting for a few years following the death of my husband after 46 years of marriage. In 2018, I took time off for heart surgery. Now back to painting.
