“Painting is something I do for the love of it, and that about sums it up.” Paul J. McCall.
My mother was a great influence when I was young. I'd watch her draw portraits and with her encouragement I found that I had a bit of talent myself. Unable to afford any formal art education I was forced to study and learn on my own. John Singleton Copley was one of the earliest artist I admired. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts July 3,1738. Most famous for Portraiture he was also a self taught artist.
I prefer portrait painting and landscapes but have always enjoyed working in many other subjects and mediums. Oil paint is my preferred medium, though I also enjoy working with watercolor, charcoal, graphite, pen and ink and pastels.
