I am 76-years old. As a teenager, I loved pencil drawing famous American Indians. After that, I did a lot of pencil drawings of Roses. I had no desire to paint until about 2 years ago. Learned a lot from the internet. One of the teachers there told me if you really want to, you can. I believe that. I really want to. I only paint landscapes, beach and ocean scapes and floral. My goal is to paint the beauty of nature and thereby honoring[hopefully] the Creator of nature, Jehovah God. I love the satisfaction when I finish a painting I like. I have done very few of those yet. I have a lot of room for improvement. I am calling myself a "Pretend Artist" until I can improve enough to call myself an Artist.
