Hi, I am new to this art thing. One night I was very anxious , couldn't calm myself down so I picked up a paint brush my kids had laying around and some kids washable paint and started to paint. I have a friend whom I instantly became his inspiration and he went out and bought us both some acrylic paints, better paint brushes, some canvase and our thing is what we call a "1^ (one up) paint off. " Whom evers painting was better we would have one up on the other. But I was told to sell my art that it was that good. So here I am trying just that and painting and drawing more then ever. It's one of the most relaxing past times ever. I didn't think I would have the patience to sit and do this cause of my high anxiety disorder but it is one of the only things that actually calms me and at the same time helps me to express feelings that I would otherwise have kept inside me all bottled up.
I am a wife and a mother to three of my own kids and a step mom to two additional kids. Only one of which is a big, my baby. They enjoy watching me paint and it has also motivated them to draw and Paint as well which has proven to be very therapeutic to them as well. So please enjoy my paintings and know each one is done with good intentions and love.
