I am a 76-year-old disabled Veteran. As a teenager, I loved pencil drawing famous American Indians. After that I did a lot pencil drawings of Roses. I had no desire to paint until about 10 months ago. Learned a lot from the internet. One of the teachers there told me if I 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 there by 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.
