I have been interested in art work and was going to go college to make it a career. Life goes on and I retired from the VA in upstate NY. I moved to Hawaii, where I now have time to devote to my love of art. Mostly acrylics and pastels because they are "quicker" than oil. I do intend to move into oils eventually. I hope to sell some art work to pay for more paints and canvases! We will see how it goes, thank you!
